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.
