CEBU, Philippines - After a brief hiatus from Star Cinema’s well-loved comedy genre that endeared her to Filipinos, Pokwang makes a grand comedic comeback in the title role of the upcoming family movie “Call Center Girl.”
It should be noted that “Call Center Girl” is Pokwang’s eleventh film under Star Cinema. Pokwang was previously seen in several of Star Cinema’s blockbuster hits such as the tearjerker “A Mother’s Story” and the horror-thriller “The Healing” and most recently, she appeared in a very special role in Kim Chiu’s “Bakit Hindi Ka Crush Ng Crush Mo?.” She was also part of the ensemble cast of the romantic comedy “24/7 In Love,” which marked the 20th anniversary of Star Magic in the industry.
“Call Center Girl” is a hilarious, smart, and laugh-a-minute movie written by Kriz Gazmen and directed by Don Cuaresma.
The movie is centered on Teresa (Pokwang) who is in a desperate race against time to unite her family and win back the affections of her estranged daughter Regina (Jessy Mendiola). By some twist of fate, Teresa, who worked in a cruise ship for 13 years, lands a job in a call center where her daughter Regina is employed thus providing her with the perfect opportunity to rekindle her broken relationship with her daughter.
In the process, Teresa encounters a diverse bunch of people from different walks of life. She then gradually appreciates the concept of extended families and ultimately, Teresa and Regina learns the true value of family as both discover their individual purposes in life.
“Call Center Girl” also stars Enchong Dee, Chokoleit, K Brosas, John Lapus, Dianne Medina, Alex Castro, Ejay Falcon, and Aaron Villaflor.
The film is part of Star Cinema’s on-going 20th anniversary and will be shown in cinemas nationwide starting Nov. 27. (PR)(FREEMAN)
