Box-office team-up of John Lloyd and Sarah back in You Changed My Life

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - Star Cinema’s A Very Special Love, the first team-up of John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo, was the biggest surprise hit of 2008. Its DVD copies sold like hot cakes.

The movie, directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina, also got good reviews. Sarah turned into an actress. The proof of the movie’s box-office feat is Sarah being named Box-Office Female Star of the Year (2008) by the Guillermo Mendoza Scholarship Foundation.

On Feb. 25, Star Cinema will release You Changed My Life in answer to requests for John Lloyd and Sarah to be paired anew.

Also directed by Cathy, You Changed My Life picks up where A Very Special Love has left off.

Sarah is Laida Magtalas who, six months after she has won her Prince Charming, continues to float on Cloud 9, feeling that her life is a bed of roses. Meanwhile, her Prince Charming Miggy Montenegro is at peace with himself and the world. The two are brought even closer because the company where Laida works has moved to the same building where the office of the company where Miggy works is also located.

But just when they are about to go on living happily ever after, the sweethearts get promoted, with Miggy assigned in Laguna and Laida offered a job in Canada. The pressures of being apart soon take a toll on their relationship.

Will love find a way to bridge the growing gap between the lovers?

Since last year when A Very Special Love was shown, a lot of changes has also happened in Sarah’s life and career. Still and all, she has remained, as she herself puts it, “loveless” (meaning she doesn’t have a boyfriend just yet). But still, like during the shoot and promo for A Very Special Love, Sarah, or John Lloyd for that matter, never pretended that there was something special between her and John Lloyd — and the public understood as proven beyond doubt by its acceptance and patronage of the loveteam’s movie.

“It means that even if they are not sweethearts in real life,” said direk Cathy, “they are convincing as such on the screen. And that’s what really matters.”

You Changed My Life (with Sarah herself singing the theme song) also stars Rayver Cruz, Rowell Santiago, Dante Rivero, Irma Adlawan, and Al Tantay.
