Star Cinema brings to the world-wide audience its biggest family drama of this generation starting October 21.
“Seven Sundays” combines some of the industry’s best artists – Ronaldo Valdez, Dingdong Dantes, Enrique Gil, Cristine Reyes, and Aga Muhlach – under the direction of one of the mega-blockbuster directors known for her solid string of consistent romantic-comedies, Cathy Garcia-Molina.
The film is a family dramedy that centers on four estranged siblings Allan (Muhlach), Bryan (Dantes), Cha (Reyes) and Dex (Enrique Gil). Their father, Manuel (Valdez), who is about to die, wants the siblings to revive their Sunday family get-togethers for the remaining months of his life.
As they are forced to be together for their father’s last few weeks, the siblings are reminded of the very reasons they fell apart and both comedy and chaos ensue.
Seven Sundays celebrates a major milestone because it marks the very first and most awaited big-screen collaboration of Director Cathy with Ronaldo, Dingdong, Enrique, Cristine, and Aga.
This movie also marks Aga Muhlach’s much awaited comeback project on ABS-CBN. Aga is one of the most iconic leading men in the film business. The last romantic movie he has done was “In The Name Of Love” alongside box-office royalty Angel Locsin bank in 2011.
Dingdong Dantes is back following the successful run of his movie “The Unmarried Wife” in 2016, just one of his long list of hits under Star Cinema.
Enrique Gil, who is proving to be one of the younger actors to reckon with after his performance in “Dukot”, is also marking his reunion with Garcia-Molina after their highly successful “My Ex And Whys” shown early this year.
“Seven Sundays” is also Cristine Reyes’ return to the silver screen after her cameo in the super blockbuster hit “Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy”, top-billed by Vice Ganda in 2013.
The veteran actor, Ronaldo Valdez, a celebrated leading man back in his days, was last seen in the romantic flick “All You Need Is Pag-ibig” in 2015. He is most known in recent times for his endearing performance in the film “The Mistress” joining this generation’s Movie Queen Bea Alonzo. Valdez was in his best element in this drama-comedy to unleash his versatility as one of the industry’s most respected actors.
Director Garcia-Molina again hopes to touch the hearts of millions of viewers in this moving family movie. The last similar movie she directed was “Four Sisters And A Wedding” in 2013.
“Seven Sundays” is a heartwarming film that reminds every Filipino that although not all families are perfect, one is for certain – the love for each other despite the problems they face.
Also featured in “Seven Sundays” include Donita Rose, Kean Cipriano, Ketchup Eusebio, April Matienzo, Jeffrey Tam, Kyle Echarri, Kin Billote, Angelica and Angelee Cruz, Gabriel Iribagon, and Alyanna Angeles.
