Synopsis

Andi (Angel Locsin) is an event planner and an aspiring fashion designer whose life has taken a rapid downturn. With no one else to turn to, she contacts her ex-boyfriend Max (Sam Milby) in the hopes that they can reconnect. However, she learns that he's already in a three-year live-in relationship with a male pediatric oncologist named Christian (Zanjoe Marudo).

In a precarious financial situation and still with nowhere else to go, Andi is forced to move in with the couple. What starts out as an awkward situation quickly turns into a story of love, and how it can sometimes come in threes.

  • 5 stars "I got sucked into watching this film when I kept seeing the commercials during my visit to the Philippines. I was pleasantly surprised. Filipino cinema tends to be cliched with love teams and poorly written scripts, but The Third Party surprised me a lot. Kudos to the producers, writers, director, and actors for tackling a story that shows LGBTQ characters with depth and ones we should laugh along with rather than laugh at. Zanjoe Marudo is phenomenal in this film and challenges that effeminate gay man stereotype. The side story with Andi and her absent mother was played beautifuly by Angel Locsin and ends up being a tearjerker later on in the film. This movie really does explore love, sacrifice, and realization in all its forms - there is surely something that any audience member will find themselves relating to."
