The much-awaited movie adaptation of “Para sa Broken Hearted”, the best-selling book by renowned young “hugot novelist” Marcelo Santos III, is all set to stir emotions on October 3, its nationwide theater release from VIVA Films and Sari-Sari Films.
Yassi Pressman, Shy Carlos, Louise Delos Reyes, Sam Concepcion and Marco Gumabao give life to the characters of Shalee, Jackie, Kath, Dan, Alex and RJ.
Shalee (Yassi Pressman) is a bubbly photography enthusiast who is battling with a heart ailment. She has had feelings for Alex (Sam Concepcion) since their younger days.
Alex is also into arts, but his favorite subject to draw is that of monsters. Everybody treats him like he’s invisible, but Shalee’s attention and affection changes his view about life.
Jackie (Shy Carlos) is an absolute go-getter, believing in girl power as she was raised by her mother and grandmother. She falls for RJ (Marco Gumabao), and does everything to get close to him.
RJ is a varsity player and a smooth-talker which is a solid combo to attract girls. He is used to girls falling for him, but promises Jackie that he would never do anything to hurt her.
Kath (Louise Delos Reyes) is an adventurous gal who is tough on the outside but soft on the inside. She meets Dan during a time when she’s mending a broken heart.
As their stories unfold, see how the characters go from being blissfully in love to failing miserably in keeping their happiness last. Discover the connection of their lives through their broken hearts, and how it will pave the way to acceptance and moving on.
Marcelo Santos III expressed his approval on the actors’ portrayal of their characters. He was present during the film’s shooting, and he’s happy that the vision of director Digo Ricio coincided with how he saw his book to be interpreted on screen.
Giving more feels to the movie is the theme song entitled “Ang Awit Natin”, sung by Janine Teñoso, composed by Jazz Nicolas and Wally Acolola, the winning tandem behind the hit song “Di Na Muli”.
