The Kingmaker

Dir. Lauren Greenfield USA/Denmark 101 min

2019 Greenwich Entertainment

Centered on the indomitable character of Imelda Marcos, the latest from Lauren Greenfield (The Queen of Versailles)  examines, with intimate access, the Marcos family's improbable return to power in the Philippines. The film explores the disturbing legacy of the Marcos regime and chronicles Imelda's present-day push to help her son, Bongbong, win the vice-presidency. To this end, Imelda confidently rewrites her family's history of corruption, replacing it with a narrative of a matriarch's extravagant love for her country. In an age when fake news manipulates elections, Imelda's comeback story serves as a dark fairy tale. — Greenwich Entertainment
