Jake Cuenca and Ryan Eigenmann Star in Mulat


Mulat (Awaken) is a psychological thriller, a time-hopping mystery, and a perspective-rich romance rolled into one. Chief in this long list are its two lead actors—Jake Cuenca (who plays the morose Jake) and Ryan Eigenmann (who is dynamite as Vince)—both of whom effectively quash any preconceived notions viewers may have of their abilities due to their notoriety in more mass-leaning vehicles. Newcomer Loren Burgos is also not to be shrugged off, and it is her impassioned turn as Sam, in equal doses forceful and vulnerable, which serves as the movie’s anchor. Supporting cast members such as the sparring couple of Logan Goodchild (Logan) and Candy Pangilinan (Cathy), as well as theater mainstay Madeleine Nicolas (Sam’s mom), also deserve kudos.

SYNOPSIS


Sam decides to break off her engagement and leave her tumultuous relationship behind after a brief but life altering experience. She resolves to focus on finding herself, her peace of mind and happiness and in the process she meets Jake, the man of her dreams. Everything seems perfect until she starts experiencing hallucinations and recurring nightmares that prompt her to question her own sanity. 

The process of self-discovery leads Sam to realize how fear and the memories of the past are subconsciously preventing her from getting what she wants the most. Will she allow her doubts and uncertainty resulting from her failed relationship be a self-fulfilling prophecy? Her journey to restore her faith takes her to different realms of possibilities and ultimately leads her to uncovering a shocking truth.
