Check Your Status in UnOfficially Yours
I'm sure there will be more "kilig moments" this coming February 15, after the celebration of Valentines Day and also lots of couples will be checking their relationship status as well.
Does relationships need labels? What defines a relationship? Romance? Intimacy? Sexual compatibility? honest-to-goodness love? are all just question lingering in every couple. Relationship does have lots of meanings and reason it's just a matter of how we may define it.
This is the theme for one of the newest movie form Star Cinema, the "UnOfficially Yours"!
Under the direction of the box-office director, Cathy Garcia-Molina, the story of "UnOfficially Yours" starts out with a one night stand of the two lead characters! "Ito na ang pinaka-matapang kong pelikula as fas as theme is concerned!" says Director Cathy, "Basically it's a sotry about a guy who believes so much in love then falls in love with someone who doesn't want to fall in love. Nagkataon kasi na the girl practices casual relationship, non-committal, no ties, ayaw n'y ng boyfriend-girlfriend, basta for fun lang! Then the character of the guy, gusto s'yang paniwalain ulit sa love, na better pa din pag pormal na relasyon than a casual relationship!' she explains.
Aside from the brave theme, what makes "UnOfficially yours" extremely exciting is that it stars two of the country's most loved and admired actors, John Lloyd cruz and Angel Locsin! "Madaming firsts sa pelikulang 'to!" says John Lloyd, 'First time namin ni Angle sa big screen, first time namin pareho sa ganitong klaseng roles, first time ng Star Cinema na sumabak sa ganitong tema na masasabing taboo pero nangyayari naman talaga sa paligid natin pero hindi lang komportable ang marami na pag-usapan. It's a bold step to tackle this theme, pero s'yempre with the touch of Star Cinema, talagang puso, 'yung pinaka-puso ng mg acharacters ang mapapanood dito. This is really something new! Something very different!" he tells. As the movie's theme dictates, the two will be seen in a "hot" love scene, "But that's not the movie's point!" John Lloyd excliams and furthers, "it will be portrayed pero ang pinka-importante sa kuwento eh 'yung magiging learning ng mg acharacters namin - 'yung tama ba o hindi na i-define ang isang relationship!" he closes.
Angel Locsin, on the other hand has this to say, "gusto naming ipakit asa mga tao kung ano ba ang casual relatioship. Kung ano ba ang advantage o disadvantage nito." she furthers, "Marami kasing kakapitan ang audience dito! Sa characters namin, sa story, totoo naman talaga ang ganito eh medyo sensitive nga lang talaga, maraming makaka-relate dito. Ako mismo, bilang babae, naiintindihan ko 'yung character ko kung bakit siya ganun. 'Yung reason n'ya ba't n'ya pinipiling maging single at kung bakit away n'yang magkaroon ng serious relationship, ng commitment." she ends.
Extremely exciting indeed! "UnOfficially Yours" may just make us all think and rethink our relationships! It's highs and lows, joys and pain, fun and no fun, casual or formal. "It's still a love sotry! Iba man ang paraan ng pagkukuwento namin dito, at the end of the day, it still talks about love, it talks about how beautiful lov eis! How better it is to love than not having love at all!" Director Cathy beams as she closes.
Now, do we really need to define relationship at all?
"UnOfficially Yours" opens on Feburary 15th, 2012 in over 100 theaters nationwide!
