STAR Cinema joins forces with Regal Entertainment in the upcoming release of You’re Still the One—a sexy drama that is set to close the hot summer season of 2015.
Directed by Chris Martinez and written by Aloy Adlawan, You’re Still the One is a romance drama centered on Elise (Maja Salvador) and Jojo (Dennis Trillo), who were schoolmates in high school. While there was an obvious attraction between them back then, Elise chose not to go into a serious relationship, and they parted ways with Jojo promising to wait for her when the time is right.
Years later, Elise, who pursued law, decides she is finally ready to reconnect with Jojo and pick up where they left off. Sadly, she discovers Jojo is expecting a baby with his girlfriend Raquel (Ellen Adarna) but is still in love with Elise.
Hurt and regretful, Elise decides to move on and meets and older man named Vincent (Richard Yap), and, even if she still has feelings for Jojo uses her head over her heart.
You’re Still the One marks the very first big screen collaboration of Martinez and his sizzling cast of four top actors. At a press conference for the movie, the director noted how each delivered their best performance, as well as how professional they all were especially with what their roles demanded.
“When I learned Maja was going to be cast as Elise, my first question was, ‘Gagawin ba ni Maja ito’?” the director recalled. “Elise has loves scenes with the two leading men—several with Dennis’ characters—and ginawa lahat ni Maja. This is definitely her most daring role to do date.”
Maja continues her winning streak as a dramatic actress as she plays the role of Elise in this movie—a performance that is worthy of her critically acclaimed deliveries in Thelma (2011), and the top-rated and controversial ABS-CBN show The Legal Wife, and her current series Bridges of Love.
Dennis, meanwhile, continues to be one of the country’s best actors who is always ready for challenging roles, no matter how daring they may be. A gem over at GMA Network, he is best remembered on prime time as the gay architect Eric in My Husband’s Lover, while his film outings are all very noteworthy.
Ellen, an emerging and versatile actress, comes into the movie at a very opportune time, as she builds a dramatic career on TV, via ABS-CBN’s upcoming series Pasion de Amor.
Finally, Richard, who is best known as “Ser Chief” via ABS-CBN’s Be Careful with My Heart, is a first-timer in a sexy drama, and said he agreed to an intimate scene with Maja despite his reserved nature because of a good and strong storyline.
Together, these four beautiful and talented actors will attempt to answer the question whether there is indeed a perfect time for the right one in the search for true love.
You’re Still the One opens in cinemas nationwide on May 27.
