T-Rex Entertainment has just released the full trailer for Bakwit Boys, an official entry to the Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino 2018.
This romantic musical film is written and directed by Jason Paul Laxamana, who is best known for last year’s PPP entry, 100 Tula Para Kay Stella.
Watch the Bakwit Boys trailer below.
A supertyphoon ravages the hometown of a family band composed of four brothers, putting a halt to their musical pursuits. They are forced to move from Isabela all the way to Pampanga to stay with their grandfather. While taking refuge in this distant farmland, the Datul brothers, who make songs together as the “Bakwit Boys,” put their musical talents to good use. The eldest brother, Elias (Vance Larena), is the band vocalist together with the youngest, Sonny (Mackie Empuerto), while Joey (Ryle Santiago) plays the guitar and Philip (Nikko Natividad) composes their songs. Not wanting to burden their grandfather, they agree to perform their original song in a town fiesta to earn some cash. Their performance impresses Rose (Devon Seron), a rich city girl who is passionate for music. She offers to help the boys record their songs and have them played on the radio. Individual interests and personal conflicts test the unity of the band, as they struggle to make sense of life’s ironies and tragedies.
Produced and distributed by T-Rex Entertainment (which also produced last year’s top-grossing PPP entry, Patay Na Si Hesus), Bakwit Boys opens August 15 in all cinemas in the Philippines as part of PPP, the annual film festival organized by the Film Development Council of the Philippines.
