‘Etiquette for Mistresses’ opens to great reviews in the US

SAN BRUNO, Calif. – Five women living different lives.  But they have one secret to tell: they are all mistresses.

The latest Star Cinema hit ,”Etiquette for Mistresses” brings to life the stories of five friends in scandalous situations.  The movie is based on a novel by Julie Yap Daza and directed by the award-winning Chito Rono.

It opened in North America theaters recently and fans said they could not be any more impressed with the performances of Claudine Barreto, Iza Calzado, Cheena Crab, Kim Chiu and Kris Aquino.

Comedienne Cheena Crab, who is now based in the San Francisco Bay Area, said she still could not believe she became part of this big Philippine movie.  She plays Charley, the wealthiest of all mistresses.

“I want to remember this moment because it may not happen again.  It’s been eight year since I had a movie role and then comes this opportunity for me to go to the Philippines and be among the leads.  I am the most grateful to be part of this project,” she said.

Cheena said the movie bravely tackles the taboo issue of being “the other woman”.  She pointed out, “This is not your typical mistress movie. After you watch the film, and if you’re in an illicit relationship, at the end of it you’ll ask yourself, ‘Should I stay or should I go?'”

The movie explores the question, “Should mistresses be condemned?”

One viewer said, “It’s all about perspective…if it’s gray or black and white.  It’s up to you to decide.”

Another viewer stated, “The mistresses would realize that the one who still have the right are the legal wives.”

“No, it’s not a sin to be the other woman,” said another.

Etiquette for Mistresses is now a certified box office hit worldwide with sold-out screenings in London and additional screenings in the Middle East.
