(SPOT.ph) We're not going to sugarcoat it: adulting is hard. From managing expenses, doing well at work, to maintaining familial, platonic, and romantic relationships all at once, it can get difficult to keep up. It wasn't always this way and you probably recall a time in your life when you were a bit more hopeful and determined to not only be the best that you can be, but also change the world. It will do you good to be a well-rounded person, but sometimes, you can't have it all in the real world. The trailer for the new film Ang Henerasyong Sumuko Sa Love deals with the trials of adulthood, and for some, it might hit a bit too close to home.
Five friends in college have been in a tight-knit group since freshman year but express their worries about being driven apart once the real world catches up to them. The character of Tony Labrusca is too invested in his work to focus on anything else, while Jane Oineza plays a girl who's too fixated on the number of subscribers on her video channel, and has very little regard of being true to herself or finding a more stable job. Jerome Ponce's character wants to take it to the next level in bed with his partner, but shows hesitation in seeing it through in the long run. Then you have Myrtle Sarrosa and Albie Casiño as a couple...that's not quite a couple. Their adventures in the bedroom are steamy and sensual, but Sarrosa's character is reluctant to commit.
Aside from their personal troubles and existential crises, the group struggles to maintain connections as they get swept away by the real world. Directed by Jason Paul Laxamana and produced by Regal Entertainment, Ang Henersayong Sumuko Sa Love weighs the options adults have, and questions if there's really no room left for love.
Ang Henerasyong Sumuko Sa Love premieres October 2 in cinemas nationwide.
