“It's an ugly story shrewdly told, with a sense of humor and also a deeper feeling for history.” Manohla Dargis, New York Times. Centered on the indomitable character of Imelda Marcos, The Kingmaker 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.
