“Sleep With Me” Web Series: An Unexpected Lesbian Love Story

Janine Gutierrez and Lovi Poe in the Sleep With Me series by out director Samantha Lee.

“Sleep with Me” is a tender love story between two female characters that highlight the social injustices experienced by those who are not able-bodied or hetero-normative.

The series offers an intimate look at the lives of these women as they navigate their relationship and the challenges that come with it.

The show is both funny and heartwarming and provides a much-needed representation of disabled and queer relationships on Filipino television.

Besides its wonderful love story, “Sleep with Me” also shines a light on the importance of consent and communication in all relationships. I highly recommend this show to anyone looking for a great show to watch this week.

Harry And Luna’s Love Story

Sleep With Me main characters Harry and Luna.

“Sleep with Me” is a six-episode lesbian romantic series from out writer/director Samantha Lee after she released queer films “Baka Bukas,” “Billie and Emma,” and “Until It’s Safe.”

The series follows the love story between Harry and Luna. The series revolves around their budding romance as they deal with each other’s disorders and past relationship issues.

Harry (Janine Gutierrez) is a wheelchair-bound host and DJ at a radio station who is offering relationship advice on a late-night show “because all broken hearts deserve to be heard.”

Luna (Lovi Poe) is a young girl who suffers from sleep disorders. Luna and Harry meet under unlikely circumstances. Wendy, the convenience store clerk where Luna spends her evenings, wins a prize on Harry’s show. Unable to leave her job, she begs Luna to go claim her prize in her place. As soon as she arrives, Luna is captivated by Harry. A connection quickly develops between them when they meet, and despite their differences, they soon discover that they have more in common than they thought. As they navigate their way through the ups and downs of their relationship, they learn to lean on each other for support.

Sleep With Me main actresses Janine Gutierrez and Lovi Poe.

The show stars Filipino actresses Janine Gutierrez (Babae at Baril, Marry Me Marry You) and Lovi Poe (Mayohan, Temptation Island), who are paired together for the first time on the small screen and who show undeniable chemistry.

The rest of the cast is also excellent, including Nour Hooshmand as Wendy, Kerwin Kin as Harry’s best friend Kai, and Katte Sabate as Luna’s bartender and friend Joy.

“Sleep with Me” has already won the Audience Award for Best Episode at the Outfest LGBTQ+ Film Festival in Los Angeles and is a hit since it premieres online on August 15.
