Janine and Lovi Give all the Feels in Interabled Queer Love Story “SLEEP WITH ME”

11:46:00 AM

 

Sleep with Me,” starring Janine Gutierrez and Lovi Poe, is the next girls’ love (GL) series that will tickle your fancy!

All six episodes just dropped on iWantTFC and the series immediately became the top trending topic on Twitter in the Philippines.

More than the genuine ‘kilig’ between the female leads, the series tackles the struggles of interabled queer individuals and how they navigate life in a society that makes them feel like outcasts.

Lovi portrays Luna, who suffers from a rare sleeping disorder, while Janine plays Harry, an ever-lovely late-night radio DJ who uses a wheelchair.

The series, which recently won the audience award for best episodic at the LGBTQ+ film festival in Los Angeles, is also available for iWantTFC premium subscribers outside the Philippines and Indonesia, and is directed by Samantha Lee, who is a proud member of the LGBT community herself.

No matter how you identify as, “Sleep with Me” is definitely a must-watch. Here’s why:

Beautiful love story between two girls

“Sleep with Me” can be classified as a GL. However, as Direk Sam mentioned in a previous interview, it is a simple and tender love story between two individuals who just happen to be girls. The series does not overcomplicate the sexuality of Harry and Luna because they both know (and are 100% sure of themselves) that they are madly in love with one another. And even if they are both female, that isn’t a problem at all because as the saying goes - “love is love.”



Represents persons with disabilities

The series also highlights the struggles (whether visual or not) of PWDs. In Luna’s case, her disorder isn’t visible as she’s been diagnosed with delayed sleep phase syndrome (no, it is not insomnia). Luna is awake during the wee hours of the night and falls asleep during the day, which makes her feel isolated from the rest of the world.

In contrast, Harry uses a wheelchair due to a past car accident. A lot of scenes highlight the lack of importance society gives to wheelchair users. However, it also gives us a different perspective on how NOT to feel sorry for them, as evident in one scene, wherein Harry tells a worried Luna “I’m not as fragile as I look.”


Lovi and Janine’s palpable chemistry

What happens when two gorgeous and alluring women play each other’s love interests? A major heart-fluttering ‘kilig’-fest. From Harry and Luna’s enchanting meet-cute, to their impromptu “date,” their intimate first night, and all the awkward yet extremely cute exchanges in between, their delicate love and fondness for each other radiates through the screen and makes viewers’ hearts skip a beat.

Luna’s angst is relatable

Luna is a science textbook writer who carries a lot of emotional baggage stemming from her rare condition and lingering issues from her past relationship. She’s used to shutting herself out from everyone else in her twilight-lit bedroom and relies on a cup of ramen noodles and iced coffee on a nightly basis.

Although she may seem stuck-up, in reality, she is just clouded by her deepest fears and is longing to be loved. That is why she found a friend in Wendy (Nour Hooshmand), who gives her wise, unsolicited advice and is willing to listen on the rare times Luna opens up to her.

 
Harry’s sweet disposition lightens up the mood

Unlike Luna, Harry is confident, a go-getter, and is the complete opposite of “torpe,” after all, she was the one who made the first move. Harry is Luna’s ray of sunshine and comes up with top-notch punchlines to reassure Luna of her love and make her feel secure. “Gawa tayo ng mundo na para sa ating dalawa lang” and “starting today, ako na ‘yung magwo-worry sayo 24/7” are some of her best remarks.

Highlights a cute sibling bond

In addition to Harry and Luna’s love story, the series explores the familial bond between Harry and her gay brother Kai (Kerwin King), as well as Luna and her younger sister Lia (Reign Parani). Harry and Kai are queer siblings who bring out the best in each other. Meanwhile, Luna is somewhat able to let her guard down whenever she talks to Lia, who lives in another country.

Woke Up Like This, Vhong Navarro and Lovi Poe Switched

9:11:00 AM


Today's news, Vhong Navarro and Lovi Poe switched bodies!


As of the moment, no one knows how it happened and why it happened. No one even knows how long they will be like that. So, if you want to know more about them, hit the cinema and watch the movie "Woke Up Like This" that brought back together prime comedian Vhong Navarro and prime actress Lovi Poe. This is their comeback movie together, a funny hilarious, riotous and wackiest movie from Regal Entertainment. It is directed by Joel Ferrer and the story is written by a wackiest duo, Jeff, and Joma. They are some of the writers who do great comedy scripts in the industry.

Vhong and Lovi last paired in one of the episodes of "Shake, Rattle, and Roll XVI" where they brought a spine chilling experience to movie goers. This time it is something different, something refreshing and very millennial. Though the story of body switching is not new, the writers, director, and casts assured that this is something different. Funny, hilarious and crazy, this film brings out the funny side of Lovi and the feminine side of Vhong.







Vhong also shared that the movie is somewhat similar to the film Hot Chick, where body and soul of the main characters switched.

In "WULT," Vhong made sure that the audiences would be even more entertained with his comic antics. He plays the role of Lando, dubbed as the king of the Basketball Court. A hardcore cager, he is a dutiful son who takes on the role of the head of the family after his father (played by Joey Marquez) meets an accident and injures himself on the court.

Unfortunately, Lando can be unsportsmanly at play and his dream of being part of a big basketball league is sidelined when he wakes up one day being in the body of a woman he doesn't even know.





Lovi plays the character Sabrina, tagged as the Ramp Queen. Beautiful, sexy, and very competitive.

Her fate as a most sought-after model vying for the Supermodel of the Whole Wide Philippines title will change when she finds herself trapped in a man's body.

The switch of Lando and Sabrina's body is a mystery that made the "WULT" movie an endless turn of comic situations.

Also this the "WULT" movie is also the comeback partnering of Vhong and Bayani.


"WULT" is helmed by new director Joel Ferrer. He is an actor, writer, and director best known for his projects like "Baka Siguro (2015), "Blue Bustamante (2013) and "Hello World" (2013). His works have been cited for their clever dialogue and conversational comedy. "WULT" is his directorial debut for mainstream cinema.

"WULT" is also cast by some of the best comedians like Joey Marquez and Bayani Agabayani.












Sexy Pinoy Big Brother alumnus Cora Wadeell is being introduced in the film while Dionne Monsanto, Ynna Asistio and child actor Raikko Mateo plays some of the important roles in the film.

Teaser has already made everyone laugh and it will definitely spread belly laughs in cinemas nationwide on August 23. "Woke Up Like This" is the latest offering of Regal Entertainment, the same company that produced Ai-Ai de las Alas' blockbuster hit, "Our Mighty Yaya."
