A May-December affair is challenging enough. What more if a third party, who means the world to them, enters the picture?
Viva Films proudly presents May-December-January, a story of love and great sacrifices, written by no less than the National Artist for Film and Broadcast Arts, Ricky Lee, and directed by the multi-awarded McArthur C. Alejandre.
Andrea Del Rosario is Claire, a single mom and a career woman. She is aware that her son is gay and accepts this wholeheartedly. What breaks her heart, though, is finding out that they are both in love with the same man.
Gold Aceron plays 17-year-old Pol. His close relationship with his mother makes it easy for him to come out. What’s tough is suppressing his feelings for his best friend and coming to terms with Migoy’s love affair with his mom Claire.
Kych Minemoto is Migoy who is very mature for his young age of 19. He can always consider Pol’s home like his own, but he cannot look at Claire like his own mother. He proves her that his love and intentions are genuine and pure.
In this heart-wrenching love triangle, who will make the most sacrifice when family and friendship are at stake?
From the trailer alone, the deep emotions of the characters can already be felt. The theme song, “Pagdating ng Panahon,” also creates quite an impact. It’s no wonder why netizens are expressing their excitement for this movie. The trailer garnered 3 million views in less than a day of its release. At press time, it has already reached the 10-million mark.
In the course of her 26 years in show business, Andrea Del Rosario has starred in numerous movies and TV series. This former Viva Hot Babe has proven that she is way more than just a pretty face and sexy body by being a Gawad Urian Best Actress nominee. This movie is another big break for her.
Gold Aceron and Kych Minemoto, for their part, are not new to doing daring scenes with a fellow male actor.
Both have starred in boy love movies. Aceron already has a Best Actor awards under his belt from the Cinema One Original Digital Film Festival and Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino.
Minemoto, on the other hand, has a background in theater acting. This Filipino-Japanese believes that “the basic rule in acting is reacting to your co-actor.”
It’s going to be really interesting to see how these talented young actors react to each other and to Del Rosario in Ricky Lee’s May-December-January.”
May-December-January is showing in Cinemas nationwide starting this Friday, October 12.
See you at the movies!
