‘It’ girls rock the silver screen via GMA Films’ Metro Manila Film Festival entry Sosy Problems
December 14 2012On December 25, the country’s hottest “it” girls Heart Evangelista, Solenn Heussaff, Bianca King and Rhian Ramos come together for Sosy Problems, the glossiest entry of GMA Films to this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF).
Four girls, rich and famous, may have the most expensive pairs of shoes, high-end designer bags and the life that every girl wanted – but behind the glitz and glamour are the struggles and differences that they have to face.
In the story, Sosy girls’ tambayan, The Polo Club, is in danger of being torn down. The new owners of the exclusive club want to build a "yaya mall" – which for the girls is not at all a Sosy plan.
Meet the Sosy girls.
The spoiled-rich daughter of a hotelier and self-appointed leader of the Sosy group, Lizzie (Rhian Ramos), proposes a planking protest to stop the bulldozers from rolling. But she gets in trouble and as a way to get back to the good graces of their family’s matriarch; she has to do one thing – to live with her poor relatives. Having the luxuries and comfortable life that she has, will she be able to survive the living conditions in the province?
Then there’s Danielle (Bianca King), the daughter of an ex-politician who’s in the process of impeachment wherein all their assets were frozen. She is still in denial that they now are not part of Manila’s richest. Until when will she be able to cover up their financial struggle? What if she meets the guy who will love her for who she is, will she be courageous enough to accept her real status or will she stick to her plan of looking for a rich guy who can save them from financial difficulties?
Completing the Sosy Girls are frenemies Margaux (Solenn Heussaff) and Claudia (Heart Evangelista), daughters of former beauty queens who have had a long standing unfriendly competition. What if they found out that each of them is running after the same man, Benjo (Aljur Abrenica), an all-around employee at the Polo Club? Will their friendship end just because of a guy? Will someone be brave enough to give up love for the friendship?
Can our Sosy girls patch over their differences to save their friendship and the much-loved tambayan? Will they ever realize that their friends, family and loved-ones are more important than the riches and luxuries in the world?
Adding glamour to the movie are Kapuso hunks Aljur Abrenica as Benjo, Mikael Daez as Santi, Alden Richards as Iñigo, classy character actress Cherie Gil as Martina, Mylene Dizon as Bernice, Mikey Bustos as Denmark, Tim Yap as Jamie Yap, Agot Isidro as Glory, Maritoni Fernandez as Dada, Johnny Revilla as Gabriel, Ricky Davao as Sebastian, Nova Villa as Lola Patria, Barbie Forteza as Becca, Kristoffer Martin as Israel with the special participation of Ruffa Gutierrez as Luca.
The geniuses behind the fabulous creations and designer pieces that the girls are wearing are Preview Fashion Editor Daryl Chang and stylist Andrei Chang. As the Sosy girls put it, “They are not just fashion editors. They’re artists who can translate the emotions and personalities into the clothes.”
Under the helm of Director Andoy Ranay and with Marlon Rivera as the script consultant, Sosy Problems is the official entry of GMA Films to the Metro Manila Film Festival 2012.
