Enjoy love while it lasts, because Julia Barretto and Gerald Anderson are hitting it off with ‘Between Maybes’! Here’s what we know from the trailer and why you should definitely watch it!
Black Sheep had just released the official trailer for ‘Between Maybes’! The young Julia Barretto and the middle-aged Gerad Anderson might be a peculiar choice for a love team. Seeing as Julia has been usually paired with her on-screen and real-life partner, Joshua Garcia, while Gerald with more mature leading ladies, this new pairing might just be what we need to complete the summer!
Here’s the official trailer while we’re at it!
Two lost souls
The film seems to be about two lost souls who found love in each other.
Julia plays the role of Hazel, a famous actress who had no control over her own life despite all the success.
In an interview, the real-life actress shared that she immediately developed a soft spot for the character. Julia understood the character’s motivation because Hazel’s life is almost just like hers. Acting is what she does every day, and sometimes it’s easy to feel like you’re not in control of your own life anymore. We actually see this in today’s entertainment industry, where artists are often urged to conform to the fans’ expectations, sometimes forgetting that they are also human beings with their own lives. This made the role closer to Julia’s heart. She also shared that Hazel, like her, considered her craft as her home, so she’ll always come back to it no matter how far she strays. On the other hand, Gerald plays Louie, just a simple guy whose life was changed when his parents were deported to the Philippines.
If you think about it, there is one thing common about the two characters in the story. They both wanted an escape from all the noise and mess in their lives and find their peace. This, in turn, formed the catchphrase “Takas tayo?” which Julia also posted via Instagram.
How do you think the plot will go?
My theory is that the two met each other in Japan, and as we can see in the trailer, Julia asked Gerald to be her first boyfriend. They developed feelings for each other, but then Julia has to come back to her career. That’s just what I think! Nonetheless, I think we can all relate to the characters’ situation in the film. Sometimes we just want a break from everything. We make bad decisions because we’re just trying to feel in control of our own lives.
What’s even more exciting is that the film was shot in the beautiful country of Japan! And we’re pretty excited to see how the two will play out in the film! Julia shared that this is a learning experience for her to work with Gerald while the latter sees this as a refreshing experience. The two revealed that the movie will air on May 15, so don’t forget to watch!
This is definitely a film worth watching! What can you say about the Julia-Gerald love team? Do you have a theory of how the story will go? Share us your thoughts on the comments down below! Or hit us up on our Facebook or Twitter @UDoUPh.
