Get Ready: LizQuen's Alone/Together Streams Real Soon
We're still not over Tin's #NeverAgain speech.
(SPOT.ph) Hey, if it's meant to be, it's meant to be. That is one of the main lessons of life—and the 2019 romance drama Alone/Together. Directed by Antoinette Jadaone, this film saw real-life and reel-life couple Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil back together on the silver screen for the first time in two years so yes, you'd best believe it served up all the feels when it was first released. And you can relive all the emotions when Alone/Together drops on Netflix next month!
Streaming on November 5, Alone/Together features Soberano and Gil as Tin and Raf, two college sweethearts who meet during their university days: University of the Philippines in Diliman for Tin—remember all those memes and #hugot about the Sunken Garden scene?—and the University of Santo Tomas for Raf. Eventually the two part ways as they go on separate tracks. Life then does that funny thing it does sometimes and they end up meeting again (and again and again) making you wonder when, how, or if they'll finally choose to restart their relationship.
The film first had people going crazy over Soberano and Gil's look as typical Pinoy college students—but hit real hard with real-life elements when it came out. Tin's speech at the start of the film about never forgetting, set in the context of Juan Luna’s masterpiece "Spoliarium", had everyone shook with the seeming fourth-wall break as she speaks directly into the camera. It's one good indication of what sets this film apart, and what makes it well worth a re-watch.
