MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – “Die Beautiful” is one of the film entries in the ongoing Metro Manila Film Festival. It is drawing both crowds and acclaim for the portrayal of a transgender Filipino pursuing her dream of becoming a national beauty queen.
Amid the joys and tribulations of the gay pageant world, the film introduces dark secrets, one bit at a time, until you stop laughing and start crying with its main character, Trisha Echevaria.
But if there is one secret that the film reveals — as no other film has — it is how to make fake boobs.
Ever wonder how male bodies create the illusion of cleavage?
Go watch the film.
Clue: you would need a lot of plastic tape.
The Adobo Chronicles gives this film 5 stars!
