MANILA — Anne Curtis returns to her sexy drama roots in “Just a Stranger,” where she portrays a married woman who starts an affair with a man half her age.
Released on Friday, the first teaser for the Jason Paul Laxamana film finally shows the onscreen chemistry of Curtis with her young leading man, Marco Gumabao.
The teaser starts with Mae (Curtis) inside a confessional, revealing her situation with Jericho (Gumabao). The two crossed paths in Portugal, setting the beginning of their affair against picturesque sights in the European country.
However, glimpses of conflict are shown as they continue their romance in the Philippines, including Mae apparently spying on Jericho with a different woman, and Mae juggling her secret relationship and her marriage.
“Sometimes we’d rather forget the best moments of our lives, just to avoid the pain that comes with the knowledge that we’ll never ever get to experience them again,” director Laxamana wrote in an earlier Instagram post teasing a scene from the film.
Produced by Viva Films, “Just A Stranger” is scheduled for release in cinemas on August 21.
