Dawn Zulueta, Richard Gomez and Bea Alonzo is the powerful acting triumvirate in Star Cinema’s biggest romantic drama production for the year, The Love Affair.
Directed by Neul Naval, from a story and screenplay by Vanessa Valdez, The Love Affair tells the story of three different individuals with love as the unifying element that binds them together. One is Patricia (Dawn), a wife seeking forgiveness after committing the biggest mistake of her life. The other is Vince (Richard), a man who yearns to be the best husband and provider he could be, yet is confronted to make the most crucial decision in his life. And then there is Adie (Bea), an emotionally broken woman who is searching for happiness after a failed relationship. The lives of Patricia, Vince and Adie will all meet at a crossroads that will force them to face the ultimate sources of their pain.
It should be noted that The Love Affair marks not only the directorial debut of Naval under Star Cinema, as it is also the very first big screen collaboration of Dawn, Richard and Bea.
Dawn and Richard’s love team is one of the most celebrated and enduring tandems in the history of the industry. Their fans are comprised of an eclectic demographic that cuts across different generations—form their ‘90s fans to a younger fan base as evident from the success of their recent projects namely the phenomenally top-rating Walang Hanggan, and the box office hit She’s Dating the Gangster.
Bea on the other hand is both a movie and box office queen of her generation, and regarded by the Filipino audience as the perennial heroine from the sustained success of her films, among them One More Chance (2007) and The Mistress (2012). The Love Affair is Bea’s first full-length movie since appearing in the commercially successful and critically acclaimed films Four Sisters and a Wedding and She’s the One, both in 2013.
The Love Affair will open in cinemas nationwide on August 12.
