Yesterday, I decided to watch the movie And I Love You So because I was so bored.
Falling in love was not part of Lara's (Bea Alonzo) plans until she meets Oliver (Derek Ramsay) who sweeps her off her feet. Oliver and Lara are the picture of a happy couple in love until tragedy strikes. Lara suddenly finds herself all alone with no reason to move on. Then she meets Cris (Sam Milby), a man who’s set on breaking down her walls and forcing her to face life without Oliver. Together they will begin a one of a kind journey that will ultimately heal both their broken hearts. But will Lara cling to her memories of the past or learn to love again?
And I Love You So is the perfect vehicle for Bea and Sam to showcase their onscreen chemistry. After their first team up years ago in Close To You, Bea and Sam have developed a rapport that translates well onscreen. Derek’s role further underscored heartbreaking twists that people should watch out for. Plus I love how they design their set, especially Bea's condo with modern furniture.
“And I Love You So” is not the type of movie that’ll later on be a classic. Its plot has been depicted in visual arts many times before but this movie I have to tell everybody is the one you wouldn’t wanna miss. It’s a breather from all the romantic-comedies these days. It’s a sensible movie that’ll teach you how to deal with the pain of a lost love. It’ll show you that there is life after mourning and that ultimately, at a certain point, we all have to LET GO and open our hearts again. After all, LOVE ALWAYS DESERVES A SECOND CHANCE.
