Movie Info

EKSTRA (A Bit Player) is a drama-comedy film which follows a seemingly usual day in the life of Loida Malabanan, as she embarks on yet another taping day of a soap opera, as a bit player. As the shoot progresses, we get a glimpse of the truth in the ruling system of the production, as well as the exploitation on the marginalized laborers like her.


Critic Reviews for Ekstra

All Critics (1)

Santos-Recto is a huge star in her native country (fun fact: she's also the governor of Batangas province) but perfectly inhabits the life of a middle-aged single mother whose best efforts are required just to stay employed and keep her family afloat.

Audience Reviews for Ekstra


Vilma Santos was superb. But I think that the concept is better than the film itself.
