Ligo na U, lapit na me
Posted on

How could you resist a movie with such a title?
This Cinemalaya entry by Erick Salud, Noel Ferrer and Jerry Gracio tells the story of Karl Vladimir Lennon J. Villalobos (a.k.a. Intoy), who is secretly in love with his friend Jenny.
Jenny and Intoy agree to become “friends with benefits” on the condition that none of them falls in love with each other.
Before graduation, Intoy decides to profess his love for Jenny, only to find out that Jenny is pregnant. Worse, Jenny tells him: “Don’t worry, this isn’t yours.”
Based on the bestselling novel of Eros S. Atalia, Ligo na U, Lapit na Me is an examination of postmodern love and relationship and the way this generation deals with their love and fear.

Stars Edgar Allan Guzman and Mercedes Cabral.
Also starring Mel Kimura, Simon Ibarra, Tolyts “Shalala” Reyes, Evelyn Vargas, Beverly Salviejo, Malouh Crisologo, Jojo Saguin, Joseph Bitangcol, Lucky Mark Mercado, Joe Vargas, Christian Tan, Ian Lazibal, Alex Tiglao, Ardie Bascara.
Introducing Victor Medina, with a special guest appearance by Luis Alandy.

Screenings:
July 22 (Friday) at the CCP MKP Hall at 6:15 p.m.
July 23 (Saturday) at the CCP Little Theater at 12:45 p.m.

Nope. Mas mababaw yun. This focuses on other themes aside from just sex. 

I didn’t like how the book was written so the movie was a refreshing change.

great example of a complicated gurl.  perfect na sana kaso nagsaabi ng “dood”, which makes me cringe.  hehe
