On August 16, Black Sheep released the trailer of Open, a film that stars Arci Munoz and JC Santos. The film explores the situation of a long-term couple who attempts to save their relationship by being sexually open to others.
The trailer gives viewers a glimpse of Rome (Arci) and Ethan’s (JC) relationship. There’s an air of comfort and familiarity since they’ve been together for 14 years. While Rome expected a proposal, Ethan laughs it off and he later presents the idea of an open relationship as they try to save what they have.
“Ang hirap para sa akin,” Arci tearfully says. “Bakit sa kanya parang ang dali-dali lang?”
While Rome isn’t too keen on the idea, she is forced to agree on the set-up. In one of the scenes, Rome said, “Kung hindi ko sasakyan ‘to, baka tuluyan na siyang mawala.”
Ethan later develops a sexual relationship with Erika, played by Ina Raymundo. In a scene where Rome confronts Ethan, a distraught Rome said, “Ilang beses na nangyari sa inyo ni Erica? Kulang na kulang ba ako?”
Open is directed by Andoy Ranay and is one of the entries for the Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino 2019. It is slated for release on September 13, 2019.
