SEVEN lives are entangled by love, obsession, and betrayal in the iWant original “Love Lockdown,” the first-of-its-kind digital full-length movie filmed in quarantine by lead stars Angelica Panganiban, Jake Cuenca, JM de Guzman, Arjo Atayde, Sue Ramirez, Tony Labrusca, and Kylie Verzosa. It streams for free on iWant beginning this Friday, May 15.
The sexy suspense film was shot by the artists themselves from their own homes. The artists, in coordination with the directors, also had to be their own stylists, production designers, and location managers, with the guidance of directors Andoy Ranay, Darnel Villaflor, Noel Escondo, and Emmanuel Palo.
“Love Lockdown” brings together three stories set in the present quarantine period. It starts with seemingly happy couple Jacob (Jake) and Karen (Kylie), who are blissfully alone together in a condo of their own. Their paradise ends however, when Jacob’s wife Lesley (Angelica) discovers their illicit affair.
After finding out about her cheating husband, Lesley meets a new friend and becomes a part of an interwoven series of events involving other people isolating during lockdown.
The three-part original film is directed by Andoy Ranay, Darnel Villaflor, Noel Escondo, and Emmanuel Palo, and produced by Dreamscape Entertainment. It also serves as the reunion project of “That Thing Called Tadhana” lead stars Angelica and JM, “Los Bastardos” co-stars and real-life partners Jake and Kylie, and the “Hanggang Saan” on-screen duo of Arjo and Sue.
“Love Lockdown” streams this May 15 on the iWant app or on iwant.ph.
