What's wrong with the youth of today? The adults will forever wonder but the youth speaks of the kind of parenting we have all created showing at Cinemalaya X's Best Cast Ensemble #Y. The grand press conference held last Wednesday attended by Elmo Magalona, Sophie Albert, Kit Thompson, Slater Young, Chynna Ortaleza and Coleen Garcia with director Gino M. Santos explained the movie running on hashtag Y reflecting the trending attitude of the youth on social media YOLO-You Only Live Once. The story is about four friends with different struggles in life being rich with the main character Miles (played by Elmo Magalona) contemplating on suicide.
#Y produced by TimeFrame Productions and Stained Glass Productions written by Jeff Stelton seemed like Pinoy style of "American Pie" inspired by director Gino M. Santos' memory of a friend who committed suicide in college. I didn't have a chance to ask what other alternative titles they would have for the film considering the dysfunctional characters playing in the film but Mr. Mario Bautista shed light confirming the real suicide with director Gino M. Santos. What happened to the characters and what struggles did they have to face that contributed to the brilliance of this film? Will Miles (Elmo Magalona) survive the suicide attempt? What did the parents do to make these kids suffer in distinct anxieties? Let's all find out on December 10, 2014 at all cinemas nationwide.
