This was one of my favorite movies in 1999, and even time cannot change that. It was set in Thailand, but shot in the Philippines. It was Claire Danes' unforgettable note about Manila that made her ironically, a household name and a "persona non grata". Though shot more than 15 years ago, even with it's shortcomings, watching "Brokedown Palace" now won't hurt. Still good. It's a movie with a heart.
