Star Cinema’s latest movie offering, Sin Island, a different kind of love story starring Coleen Garcia, Xian Lim, and Nathalie Hart, is currently screening outside the Philippines via [email protected]
This is the first in a long time that Star Cinema produces a movie this bold. A combination of an overflow of sensuality, and the love triangle between Garcia, Lim, and Hart, Sin Island is expected to be a sizzling big screen affair.
Under the direction of Gino Santos, who is known for his unique brand of filmmaking, together with the fresh screenplay by Jancy Nicolas, Sin Island comes out as a sexy romance that seeks to find out if a marriage could truly survive two infidelities.
The story revolves around picture-perfect married couple David (Lim) and Kanika (Garcia) whose paradise will be put to the test as Kanika enters a dangerous affair, shortly after the career of David moves towards a downward spiral.
As David discovers Kanika’s transgressions, he flees to Sinilaban Island where he meets and engages in a carnal affair with a girl named Tasha (Hart).
Despite their mistakes, David and Kanika decide to rekindle their relationship but Tasha refuses to let go of David.
The film may fall under the sexy genre, but Nicolas says it is not lacking in values that the viewers could learn from.
“It talks about redeeming love, redeeming a marriage, and fighting for it. More than the sexiness and darkness of its genre, it’s a story of a marriage,” he explains.
Meantime, Garcia is successfully positioned as one of the industry’s hottest and most prized talents of her generation, whose impressive body of work both on television and in film continues to grow.
Sin Island is Garcia’s fourth movie under the direction of Santos, from Hashtag Y, Ex with Benefits, to Love Me Tomorrow.
“This is the sexiest role I’ve done since I’m married in this film. Also, this is the bravest and hardest film that I’ve done so far,” Garcia reveals.
On the other hand, it is worth noting how Lim takes his acting skills a notch higher as he portrays the character of David in this brave film, which is his most mature role to date.
“Definitely, people will see me do scenes which are different from what they are used to see me doing in a film. I guess I’m pushing my capabilities as an actor, and ability to tackle different roles,” Lim explains.
Also perceived to be the next big thing in the industry is Hart, who is gaining mainstream popularity of late.
Sin Island marks her first film under Star Cinema, which she says is more than just a sexy film.
“It’s not about being seductive and showing some skin - it has a story,” she explains.
Sin Island is currently screening in Papua New Guinea, U.S., Canada, and Saipan. It premiered in Singapore on March 4 and will be available in other territories soon.
