PDI reviews Roxxxanne


We got a rave review today from the Philippine Daily Inquirer!

"... in the taut and gripping cautionary drama, “Roxxxanne,” Lana finds the perfect balance between social commentary and mature entertainment. Lead actor Jay Aquitania is pitch-perfect as Marlon, a handsome but closeted gay student who collects cell-phone porn videos to impress his friends—especially tricycle driver, Jonas (Janvier Daily), to whom he’s attracted.

Then, the sexually confused protagonist’s pastime takes a deadly turn: In his search for the ultimate sex video, he consequently ends up creating a scandal involving one of his mother’s (the scene-stealing Elizabeth Oropesa) boarders, the mysterious Roxanne (Sheree, who’s beautiful but awkward)—that leads to unspeakable tragedy!

Lana’s film deftly tackles Filipino society’s destructive culture of gossip as he interweaves issues involving homosexuality, physical (and verbal) abuse—and the dangers of modern technology!"
