After making their loveteam debut in 2019 and starring in iWantTFC’s #1 Original Series, He’s Into Her, and Love is Color Blind – the highest-grossing Filipino film of 2021 – Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano reunite on the screen. The new project also serves as Star Cinema’s big screen comeback.
As Donny and Belle displayed their acting prowess, they became the “New Gen Phenomenal Loveteam.” In An Inconvenient Love, expect Donny and Belle to step into more mature and relatable roles that depict the sentiments of this age.
“It’s our honor to star in a movie that serves as Star Cinema’s comeback on the big screen. Here, you will see us portray characters that we’ve never done before,” the love team chimed during the movie’s grand media launch.
In Star Cinema’s comeback movie, Ayef (Belle) and Manny (Donny) reflect the view of this generation: a need for convenient love.
Ayef works in a 24-hour convenience store while striving to have an animation career in Singapore. On the other hand, Manny runs HalaManny, a plant boutique shop, and is also a secret social activist. After an unexpected meeting, they get along because of their shared belief in love – it is just another inconvenience. With the many sacrifices they already have on their plates, they agree to a contractual relationship but can they truly love with an expiration date?
After years in the pandemic, Star Cinema is finally making its cinematic comeback with An Inconvenient Love. Star Cinema has graced the theaters with its heartfelt stories touching Filipinos from different walks of life. With this generation growing up watching its films, Star Cinema movies feel like a homecoming. It expresses the narratives and dreams of the Filipino people across film genres.
Its latest movie, An Inconvenient Love, promises to give a fresh and new take on our familiar romcoms especially since this is Petersen Vargas’s debut movie with Star Cinema.
Petersen previously directed the feature 2 Cool 2 Be 4gotten and Hello Stranger: The Series. His work revolves around authentically capturing the stories of the youth. While exuding the same warmth that Star Cinema films are known for, he goes out of the box in An Inconvenient Love as it explores the thrill of love with an expiration date. Truly perfect for the first theatrical release of Star Cinema this year.
An Inconvenient Love unspools in the cinemas on November 23.
