From being a darling daughter of the iconic loveteam of Guy and Pip, the doll named ‘Maria Leonora Teresa’ who was once considered to be their ‘daughter’.
In fact, this doll is the only doll in Philippine Showbiz history to have its own launching movie and people watched it. Back then, Maria Leonora Theresa or MLT to many had its own contract for TV and movie appearance. MLT was treated like a human child who had her own wardrobe, jewelry sets, combs, sunglasses and even make-up kit.
Today, MLT comes back on the silver screen, not as a sweet reminder of the three-foot, ceramic- faced doll, but as three personas in doll forms named ‘Maria’, ‘Leonora’, and ‘Teresa’. It is about a scary, dolly story.
The three dolls will be given to three individuals (Faith, Julio, and Stella played by Iza Calzado, Zanjoe Marudo, and Jodi Sta. Maria) who lost their respective daughters in a tragic incident. And to help cope with their loss, a psychiatrist named Manolo (Villanueva) offers them life-sized dolls to look after, but the situation only worsens when the toys appear to be brought to life by a sinister force.
Opening this 17th of September, ‘Maria Leonora Teresa’ is directed by Wenn Deramas.
