Ella Cruz and Louise Abuel’s award-winning movie, Edward will soon be showing in cinemas nationwide.

It was an entry to this year’s Cinemalaya, an independent films festival and directed by Thop Nazareno. Now it will be distributed commercially for everyone to see starting on October 2.

It is the story of Edward, the character played by Louise, and his mundane life in a public hospital where he lived for so long to take care of his ailing father.

He then meets this mysterious girl, Agnes (Ella) who got into an accident and was brought to the hospital who became his love interest.

During an interview with the press, Ella and Louise talked about the kissing scene in the film. It can be remembered they have previously worked together in the series Aryana when Ella was only sixteen and Louise was nine years old.

Louise shared his thoughts when he first read the script and saw that there will be a kissing scene. “Kaya ko kaya ‘tong kissing scene? Hindi ko rin alam kung sinong partner ko. Tapos sabi si Ate Ella Cruz daw. Sabi ko, nakasama ko siya dati. Hindi ko alam kung magiging kumportable ba ako dun sa… Kasi syempre nakasama ko, mahirap ‘pag first time lang namin nagkita. Siguro mas kakayanin ko kasi kakilala ko siya. Pero pagdating ko, ‘nung magstart na ‘yung eksena, nanginginig talaga ako. Hindi ko alam ‘yung nararamdaman ko ‘nung oras na ‘yun.”

On the other hand, Ella shared, “Nung time na ‘yun, sinabi ko kay Direk eh, ‘Direk, ‘wag na natin practisin ‘to. Kunan natin ‘yun talagang magiging expression ni Louise kasi first time niya talaga in real life tapos first time niya sa pelikula so magiging sobrang raw ‘nung emotions niya, ‘yung magiging reaksyon niya.’”
