Movie Review

Caregiver is a 2008 Filipino drama film. The film stars Filipina actress Sharon Cuneta portraying the role of Sarah, a mother who left her son in the Philippines and also a teacher who relinquished her profession in lieu of care giving in London, in hopes of augmenting her salary. Chito S. Roño directed the film and Chris Martinez wrote its screenplay.

It is the top-grossing Filipino movie of the year, by far. The film also receives mostly positive reviews from critics.

The film is based on real-life story of Filipino caregivers abroad. Director Roño searched for stories of their life abroad and personally talked to some who shared their experiences. Roño has friends who work as caregivers; their real-life scenarios were directly depicted in the film.

Eighty percent of the film was shot in Littlehampton, London in three straight weeks. Shots in Littlehampton include the snow scene, which was in the Littlehampton beach. The cast includes British actors namely: Saul Reichlin, Matthew Rutherford, and Claire Jeater.

Caregiver is released under Star Cinema, which marks the company's fifteenth year in service. The year 2008 also marks Cuneta's thirtieth anniversy in the industry, and the film serves as offering to fans.

The film was also released in international cinemas. Caregiver had its premiere in Alex Theatre in Glendale, California on May 31, 2008. Many Filipino caregivers working far from California travelled in to watch the film. It was released in late June and early July 2008 to several Middle East countries, including Qatar and Dubai.
