MOVIE REVIEW

Maid in Malacañang 

Directed by Darryl Yap 

The Big Reveal in the controversial and much-talked-about Maid in Malacañang (MIM) comes in Chapter 8, also titled “Maid in Malacañang.” All the months of buzz had it that this account of the last 72 hours of Pamilya Marcos Sr. in the Palace, would be told from the POV of three faithful kasambahay (maids) who were there and saw it all.
