Boy Golden is first on the list for most of us because it has been a controversial movie - it almost didn't make as an official entry to this year's MMFF.

Since Governor ER Ejercito did Asiong Salonga, it has been a trademark - his films are very detailed.

Speaking of details, yours truly got the chance to interview KC Concepcion during their mall tour in Glorietta.

According to his leading lady KC Concepcion, they shot the film in Ilocos and it took 4 months for them to finish it. They were all tired. She said it was worth the wait. An ER Ejercito film is very 'mabusisi' and does not sacrifice quality.

ER does not wish an award this time because he already won a lot during the previous years.

But during the press con for the press he asserted that KC Concepcion is a sure winner for best actress.

"Mananalo si KC ng Best Actress.... kung matalo siya, tiyak na dinaya!" he said. The script was specially made for KC's role.

On our interview with KC, she said she was not after for the Best Actress award, she just did what is the instruction in the script, if she wins that will be credited for the whole team.

Movie Review: Boy Golden
Palabas na ang Boy Golden kasama ang iba pang pelikulang kalahok sa MMFF 2013.
Medyo mahaba ang pila ng Boy Golden sa SM Megamall pero watch pa rin ako para makita kung anong meron ang pelikulang ito.
Maganda ang narration ng story. Kumpleto ang detalye at pinag-aralan talaga ng writer and script.
Posibleng masungkit ng Boy Golden and Best Scriptwriter na award.
Yung mga cast maganda ang chemistry, kakaibang KC Concepcion ang makikita nyo rito. Mahusay din ang pag arte ni John Estrada at iba pang mga supporting cast. Kumbaga sa exam perfect ang casting para sa pelikulang ito.
Okay na sana ang lahat, medyo hindi nga lang bago ang ipinakitang gilas ng lead actor na si Governor ER Ejercito, kung ano ang level ng acting nya sa Asyong Salonga at El Presidente ay ganun din ang inyong makikita. So posibleng manalo ulit sya bilang Best Actor.
Maganda ang aral nitong storya may deep impact sa mga viewers.

Value for money ang movie na ito. Rate ko? 4/5
