Don't you just love movies that revolve around Pinoy families and their dynamics? They make you laugh, cry, laugh-cry, the works! Although we all love going to the cinemas, there are just some movies that aren't available there anymore. Good thing there are a bunch of local films (old and new!) being added to streaming sites every day. Here are a few that we spotted:
1. Seven Sundays (2018)
The sitch: Four estranged siblings go back to their family home to take care of their father, who's diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer and only has two months left to live. They are determined to revive their old tradition of spending time with the family every Sunday.
