A psychological thriller, The Caregiver is written and directed by Will Fredo and tells the story of Carlito Mariposa (Joshua Deocareza) who is nursing Agustin Vergeire (Marcus Madrigal), a “sepaktakraw” (competitive hacky sack) player who was badly injured in one of his crucial games. Confined in a very limited and shrunken world, the two developed an unlikely attraction that had Carlito thread an unexpected journey of self-discovery, shedding layers of skin along the way like a deadly viper.
The chemistry between the lead actors---Agustin, played by Philippine soap star Marcus Madrigal and Carlito, commercial actor Josh Deocareza known in the Philippine Theater for his unique interpretation of The Little Prince---takes The Caregiver in a whimsical romantic air with slow churn tense build up to the climactic ending. And the tour de force performances from the entire cast make this movie a 'must see.'
"Nothing is what it seems in this film by Will Fredo. The brewing love affair between Agustin and Carlito is not the relationship that one might think it is. The plot makes several twists and reveals much in the end. Like Fredo's previous critically acclaimed work COMPOUND, this film has a surprise ending to watch out for. It's his [Will Fredo's] skill as a screenwriter that shines through." ~ Jude Bautista, Philippine Entertainment Portal, Writer
