Offering a unique take on romance-comedy films, Star Cinema’s Love Me Tomorrow transcends generations as it features the story of a 50-year-old widow named Christy Gonzales (Dawn Zulueta) who falls in love with a 35-year-old sought-after disc jockey named JC (Piolo Pascual) who, in turn, is the apple of the eye of the free-spirited 24-year-old Janine (Coleen Garcia).
The movie was successful in tackling the issues commonly faced by the three generations involved in the story. For instance, domesticated Christy leaves her comfort zone when she meets her former classmate who is a certified member of the “Titas of Manila” played by veteran actress Carmi Martin. Likewise, Piolo’s role reflected what it means to undergo quarter-life crisis while Coleen’s character represented the millennials. It is no wonder that Dawn, during the movie’s bloggers conference, said that everybody regardless of age would have a takeaway from watching the film.
Aside from showing authentic portrayals of what it is like to belong to a certain generation and face personal issues, the movie also excels from a technical standpoint, showing interesting camera angles and commendable audio mastering given that music played a crucial part in the story. Overall, this movie, loaded with quotes, will inspire you to take another chance on life and love.
