Sleepless: Movie Review

By: Matt Suzara

Gem (Glaiza De Castro) works for a call center company who really had a hard time sleeping because of her different shifts. Being one of the top performers in their company, Gem is assigned to train the newly hired Barry (Dominic Rocco.) At first, Barry is struggling to make sales but after a few techniques taught to him by Gem, he made some sales and easily adapts to the industry. As the days passed, the two interacted well with each other as they share the same apartment building and both had a hard time to get some sleep. They soon find the comfort they seek but try to figure out how to solve the problems they have aside from how to survive a zombie apocalypse. 

The Cinelokal project offers a chance for the movie patrons to experience a lot of worthy films in a very reasonable price. For this week, they offer Prime Cruz's Sleepless, which stars Glaiza De Castro and Dominic Rocco. The gala-screening was filled with excited fans to see the film again on the big screen together with the lead stars and some celebrity guests. 

Sleepless is a majestic film that doesn't force anything. It involves two people who just want to hang out together and share the same thing that they would both enjoy. It's about having stupid conversations that sometimes don't make sense, but still it will definitely get your attention right from the get go. Another great thing about it is the simplicity of it carried by the terrific performances of its lead stars.

Glaiza De Castro and Dominic Rocco really brought the film to life. They acted naturally and sold us that their story is not only for the big screen, but it also happens in real life. They are just fun to watch as they had a great on screen chemistry compliments the entire film. 

The visuals were also a factor in adding depth to the film's already beautiful cinematography. I love the fact that they didn't go to a familiar territory and made it look predictable in the end. It will leave you hooked to the story and can't really guess what will happen to our lead characters. 

Overall, Sleepless is a well-acted simplistic film that is definitely worthy to be seen again and again on the big screen. It will have its limited run this week in selected SM Cinemas so you better free up some of the load on your busy schedule and watch Sleepless this week.

Lakwatsera Lovers rates it 8 out of 10 stars
