Indie Bravo! Mercedes Cabral gets rave from Hollywood Reporter
FILIPINO actress Mercedes Cabral earned a positive review from the Hollywood Reporter for her work in Frederikke Aspock’s “Rosita,” which was shown at the Palm Springs International Film Festival in January.
Critic Justin Lowe says of Cabral, who plays a mail-order bride in the film: She “nicely juxtaposes Rosita’s conflicting motivations for remaining in Denmark, progressing from hopeless confusion to feisty determination.” Cabral plays the titular character in the Danish film, which also features top European actors, Jens Albinus and Mikkel Boe Folsgaard.
Lowe also describes the “low-key domestic drama,” thus: “Insightful and sometimes humorous… [it] captures the small-scale demographic shift as it impacts a northern Danish fishing village and the middle-aged widower who contemplates an arranged marriage to a younger woman from the Philippines.”
