The indie movie “Changing Partners” impressed us when it won several awards at the 2017 Cinema One Originals Film Festival. These awards were the Audience Choice Award, the Champion Bughaw Award for Best Film, the Best Director for Dan Villegas, Best Actress for Agot Isidro, Best Actor for Jojit Lorenzo, Best Editing for Marya Ignacio, Best Music for Vincent de Jesus, and a Special Citation for Ensemble Acting.
Co-starring Anna Luna and Sandino Martin, “Changing Partners” was also the top box-office hit. Based on the PETA play of the same title, the script was written by Lilet Reyes and Vince de Jesus.
With a cutting-edge take on gender and relationships, “Changing Partners” is about Alex and Cris who are celebrating their first anniversary as a live-in couple. Though they are very much in love with each other despite their 15-year age gap, “they navigate the different challenges that come with their relationship.
“Changing Partner” is a love story that is shown through the perspective of different genders, showing how a real relationship works,” the writers said.
They added: “‘Changing Partners’ aims to probe into the age-old question on whether or not the perfect match between couples really exist. The film is eventually a story about falling in love and falling out of love and all the realities that go with it.”
Star Cinema releases “Changing Partners” tomorrow in cinemas nationwide.
