Regal Entertainment brings about My 2 Mommies tells the story of Manu, a discreet gay guy, with a successful career but is not out to his family.
But his life takes a pivotal turn when Monique, a woman from Manu’s his past, shows up one day and admits to him that they have a seven-year-old son.
Paolo describes his latest movie as “timely” because it tackles an issue that happens in real life.
“Ang gusto naming ipakita is a different kind of mother. Kasi ang alam natin pag Mother's Day, the usual na nasa card na puro mama.
“Tama naman ang nasa movie, hindi lang naman babae ang nanay, di ba?”
Solenn described the movie as highly relatable to many people these days.
She explained that people's views on different things, such as sexual orientation, have changed in the last couple of years.
“In a way, people are accepting things more. Pati yung LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) community is strong na also.
She continued, “Madaming bansa na ang nag-agree ng gay marriage, the world is opening up little by little, so relatable talaga ang movie.”
People are adapting to change, she further explained.
