Sunshine Cruz on sexy love scenes in ‘Malamaya’: ‘Our movie’s more than that’
After news of Sunshine Cruz’s sensual love scenes in the upcoming movie “Malamaya” made headlines recently, the actress reminded viewers to look beyond these scenes.
“Our movie is more than that. Nagugulat ako honestly sa headlines (I am honestly surprised with the headlines),” she said in her Instagram post yesterday, July 8.
“Sana people will not focus on just my love scene with a much younger actor,” Cruz stated. “I accepted the movie because it is beautiful, it is different and challenging.”
Cruz had no hesitations taking on the role since she knew she will be taken care of by the directors, as they are also women.
Aside from advising her fans and followers to not focus only on the love scenes, she also expressed her gratitude for being in a Cinemalaya project.
“Being part of Cinemalaya is a blessing!” she added. “I’ve always dreamt of being part of Cinemalaya and I am grateful for the chance.”
“See you all soon! – Nora S.,” Cruz said, referring to her character in the movie.
“Malamaya” centers on the story of Nora S. (Cruz), a pessimistic and uninspired middle-aged visual artist who reignites her passion when she meets aspiring photographer, Migs (Enzo Pineda).
The production is helmed by filmmakers Leilani Chavez and Danica Sta. Lucia. Chavez co-wrote the script with the help of Liberty Trinidad.
The film is one of the finalists of the 2019 Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival. It will run at the Cultural Center of the Philippines and in selected cinemas nationwide from Aug. 2 to 11. JB
