Love in the digital age is not necessarily a novel topic in movies today. But in ABS-CBN Star Cinema’s latest 20th anniversary offering, She’s the One, new life and a fresh spin was injected to the familiar story of romantic entanglements in this social media-driven generation.
Directed by Mae Czarina Cruz, She’s The One is about how a long-time friendship can change because of one crazy circumstance that forces two friends to re-evaluate how they feel for each other in this new generation of Facebook, Twitter and viral videos.
She’s The One stars three big-name actors who have been part of two huge Filipino box-office hits and one top-rating teleserye on TFC this year. In January, Dingdong Dantes impressed North America filmgoers when the drama, “One More Try” screened in multiple theatres around the region. The film was hailed Best Picture at the 2012 Metro Manila Film Festival and gave Dantes a Best Actor nod.
Back in July, fans formed long queues at the movie theatres for the blockbuster, “Four Sisters and A Wedding”, that starred Bea Alonzo with Angel Locsin, Shaina Magdayao, Toni Gonzaga and Enchong Dee.
On TFC this year, Enrique Gil joined Enchong Dee and Julia Montes in the popular teleserye, “Muling Buksan Ang Puso”, a star-making turn that gave Gil the title, “The Next Ultimate Leading Man” of Philippine showbiz.
Together for the first time under Cruz’s direction, Dantes, Alonzo and Gil are making a killing at the box office back in the Philippines with She’s The One, which had an opening day take of P12 million a week ago and fast climbing. Written by the award-winning Vanessa Valdez, the film is woven around the idea of an “epiphany” – a “Eureka moment” that could change one’s entire life and where it’s heading. But in this era of “it’s complicated” relationships, how far would one go toward that realization before it’s too late?
Co-starring with Dantes, Alonzo and Gil in She’s The One are Maricar Reyes, Liza Soberano, Tony Mabesa, Perla Bautista, Pinky Amador, Guji Lorenzana, RS Francisco, Marc Solis, Erika Padilla, Garlic Garcia, Daniel Matsunaga, LJ Reyes and Coleen Garcia.
