The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) has given the Cinemalaya 2012 entry “The Animals” an R16 rating. Directed by Gino Santos, “The Animals” stars former PBB Teen housemate Patrick Sugui, young model Dawn Balagot, Issa Litton, Micah Cabral, Vangie Martelle, John Wayne Sace, Bryan Homecillo, Carlo Cruz, Andrew Felix and Albie Casiño.
The story of “The Animals” is set in an affluent, upper middle class village in the suburbs, “The Animals” chronicles a day in the life of Jake, Trina, and Alex, who go through the musings that every kid in high school has to deal with. All Jake wants to do is have a good time, Alex just wants to fit in, and Trina simply wants more. A very vivid picture is painted of life in high school after the final bell rings, as well as a different side of the Philippines, and what is happening to its privileged children.
