Savor a deliciously romantic pre-Valentine treat this February with the mainstream theatrical release of That Thing Called Tadhana, one of the official finalists of the 10th Cinema One Originals Film Festival in November 2014.
The movie ran in theaters in Metro Manila to rave reviews from critics and positive feedback from moviegoers.
Written and directed by Antoinette Jadaone—who is also behind 2014’s Beauty in a Bottle and Relaks, It’s Just Pag-ibig—That Thing Called Tadhana is a romantic comedy starring Angelica Panganiban and JM de Guzman.
The film effectively and successfully puts an unmistakably Filipino flavor to the age-old question asked by countless hapless lovers throughout the ages: “Where do broken hearts go?”
In the case of Tadhana, two broken-hearted individuals Mace (Angelica) and Anthony (JM) accidentally meet in an airport in Europe and develop an unlikely kinship that will lead them to an unforgettable sojourn to the Northern Philippines.
Together, they explore Manila, Baguio and Sagada where their friendship may just take a different turn and lead to the mending of their broken hearts.
For the bravura of her portrayal, Angelica received the Gawad Tanglaw Best Actress Award from an academe-based group that honors exceptional achievements in local filmmaking. Moreover, Angelica also bagged the Best Actress trophy at the 2014 Cinema One Originals Film Festival Awards.
That Thing Called Tadhana is distributed by Star Cinema and will open in theaters on February 4.
