WATCH: LizQuen meets Pinoy fans in UAE during “Alone/Together” screenings

On-screen love team and real-life couple Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano sent their Filipino fans in Dubai and Abu Dhabi into frenzy during the screening of their new movie “Alone/Together”.

The couple left Manila on Monday, February 18, to fly to the UAE for the international screening of their new movie.

The pair, collectively known as LizQuen, had two special screenings in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and Filipino fans flocked to the cinemas to see their idols in person.

As posted on Star Magic’s Instagram, some fans were lucky enough to pose for a photo op with Soberano and Gil, while most of them just enjoyed the movie.

The couple also attended a press conference held at the Reel Cinema in Dubai Mall.

Directed and written by Antoinette Jadaone, the film follows the story of college sweethearts Christine (Soberano) and Raf (Gil), and how their relationship changed over the years as they grow older.

They broke up after Christine, who used to be an ambitious and outstanding fine arts student, got involved in an employee theft case that caused her life to turn upside down and her dreams to be shattered. Meanwhile, Raf went on to pursue his studies and became an acclaimed doctor.

They were reunited after years of not seeing each other only to find out that they still have feelings for one another.

Raf wants to get back with Christine and turn the “what-ifs” of their relationship to reality, but their circumstances in life made it difficult to do so.

“Alone/Together” can now be watched in several UAE theaters. It is also the first Filipino movie to hit Abu Dhabi theaters, according to Star Magic.
