Graded B by the Cinema Evaluation Board, “The Mistress” is still showing in 200 cinemas nationwide in selected theatres worldwide.

Tagged as John Lloyd and Bea’s bravest film ever, “The Mistress” tackles the controversial issue of infidelity. “Interesting siya kasi marami talagang nasa sitwasyon na ganyan. But it was never an intention to be controversial,” shared Direk Olive. “When it was conceptualized it was simply about a story of a man who falls in love with a woman who happens to be a mistress. We also got interested in what king of mistress or a woman this mistress is to be worthy of this man’s love.”

But what makes "The Mistress" more fascinating is the love triangle among the Sari (Bea), the mistress; Rico (Ronaldo Valdez), the benefactor; and JD (John Lloyd) persistent admirer. 

“In every triangle, it becomes more interesting kung parang level ‘ yung competition ng ka-triangle," said Direk olive. 

“What’s also appealing about the film is that kuwento siya ng flawed characters. All of them are flawed but all of them have a heart and in getting to know them, you would sympathize and empathize with them.”

Aside from John Lloyd, Bea and Ronaldo, also part of “The Mistress” is the multi-awarded actress Hilda Koronel who plays the character of Regina, Rico’s legal wife. Completing the cast are Anita Linda, Carmi Martin, Tony Mabesa, K Brosas, Gabe Mercado, Minnie Aguilar, Nor Domingo, and Clarence Delgado.
