The country’s leading cable channel, Cinema One, has now surpassed 100,000 subscribers on its YouTube channel.
The online channel is Cinema One’s digital platform that gives netizens access to full movies, rare movie documentaries, CinemaNews bits and other entertainment news, special behind-the-scene features, exclusive interviews, archival footage of Cinema One, and many more.
Last February, it premiered the Cinema One Originals’ flick “That Thing Called Tadhana” and the movie has gained almost two million views as of this writing. Other releases include “Confessional,” “Yanggaw,” and the “Himala Ngayon” docu.
Meanwhile, “Rome & Juliet,” an LGBT-themed film starring Andrea del Rosario and Mylene Dizon, will be streaming on the online channel for the first time this May 30 (Thursday).
Juliet (Andrea), a conservative pre-school teacher who is about to get married, hires free-spirited Rome (Mylene) as her wedding planner. The two develop a deep friendship that leads to a forbidden connection. What will happen when Juliet’s fiancé finds out about the unexpected romance between the two women?
Gigi Javier Alfonso hailed the film’s courage for exploring an unpopular theme in her review on www.manunuri.com. She said, “Director Connie Macatuno, with the script of Chris Violago, dares to take up a sensitive issue more specifically in a macho country such as ours. The film deals with lesbianism with new images and storyline.”
The romance-drama gave Mylene the Best Actress award in C1 Originals. It also earned Best in Production Design for Gerry Santos.
