Amigo (2010) Starring Joel Torre

Amigo is a 2010 Filipino drama movie starring Joel Torre, Chris Cooper, Garret Dillahunt, Dane DeHaan, Rio Locsin, Ronnie Lazaro, Yul Vázquez, Bembol Roco, and DJ Qualls. This pinoy film is directed by John Sayles. It is produced by Anarchist's Convention Inc. It is distributed by Variance Films (North America) and Star Cinema & Origin8Media (Philippines).

Plot: AMIGO, the 17th feature film from Academy Award-nominated writer-director John Sayles, stars legendary Filipino actor Joel Torre as Rafael, a village mayor caught in the murderous crossfire of the Philippine-American War.

When U.S. troops occupy his village, Rafael comes under pressure from a tough-as-nails officer (Chris Cooper) to help the Americans in their hunt for Filipino guerilla fighters. But Rafael’s brother (Ronnie Lazaro) is the head of the local guerillas, and considers anyone who cooperates with the Americans to be a traitor. Rafael quickly finds himself forced to make the impossible, potentially deadly decisions faced by ordinary civilians in an occupied country.

A powerful drama of friendship, betrayal, romance and heartbreaking violence, AMIGO is a page torn from the untold history of the Philippines, and a mirror of today’s unresolvable conflicts.

Supporting Cast: Lucas Neff, James Parks, Stephen Taylor, Jemi Paretas, Bill Tangradi, Irma Adlawan, Joe Gruta
