June 23, 2013 by Star Cinema
The all-star cast of Star Cinema’s kick-off offering for its 20th anniversary celebration “Four Sisters And A Wedding”–Bea Alonzo and Toni Gonzaga and Angel Locsin, Enchong Dee, Shaina Magdayao–is united in saying that its upcoming light family movie has a narrative that is close to the hearts of all Filipino families. Directed by box-office director Cathy Garcia-Molina, “Four Sisters And A Wedding” will be shown on cinemas nationwide next Wednesday (June 26).
A heartwarming Pinoy story about family relationships, siblings who have grown together and fell apart, and unconditional love, “Four Sisters And A Wedding” is a special gift to the moviegoers by Star Cinema, the country’s largest film production outfit known for creating top caliber movies that truly capture the hearts of Filipinos because of its stories that talk about the real-life experiences being shared by ordinary friends, couples, relatives, siblings and families.
According to Bea, who will portray the role of the second child Bobbie, it is an honor for everyone in the cast to be part a film that tackles the importance of having a family and being committed to keeping it whole no matter what.
“Lahat ng ingredient na kailangan mo for a perfect movie nandito na–the cast, Direk Cathy, and the story na pampamilyang Pilipino talaga. I’m sure, at least sa isang character sa pelikulang ito ay makaka-relate ka,” said Bea. “Istorya kasi ito ng limang magkakapatid na nag-grow apart because they went to different places and pursued different careers. Ang tanong, kapag pinagsama-sama ba sila dahil sa isang selebrasyon kagaya ng isang wedding, ganoon pa rin ba sila ka-close tulad ng dati?”
Toni shared that they are all proud with the film’s concept because it shares real-life encounters of ordinary Filipino families. “Parang sa isang normal na pamilya talaga namang may comedy, may drama, at minsan may action pa,” said Toni, who will play the character of the first born of the Salazar family, Teddie. “Sa movie na ito natutunan ko na you can choose your friends and the people you wanna hang out with, but you can never choose your family. Binigay sa iyo ‘yan. Kaya kung anuman ‘yung kakulangan ng isa sa inyo, kailangan mong tanggapin at mag-adjust ka. Kasi at the end of the day, ‘yan ang foundation kung sino ka. Iiwan ka ng lahat, ang pamilya mo, hindi.”
Like the Salazar siblings, the four lead stars of “Four Sisters And A Wedding” treat each other as part of a special family in the set. According to Angel, who will portray as the third child Alex, the cast and crew are so happy while filming that everything seemed so light to do.
“Sobrang saya sa set namin. Ang gaan ng pakiramdam. Walang pa-star, walang pa-diva, walang nag-iinarte. Lahat kami parang same ‘yung passion sa ginagawa namin at pati sa humor same rin,” shared Angel. “Ang naging challenge lang sa aming lahat ay kung papaano magiging pare-pareho ‘yung certain styles namin, tulad ng sa pagsasalita, bilang magkakapatid ang characters namin dito. Pero pagdating sa ganun, ang genius talaga ni Direk Cathy kasi sobrang bantay niya kami kahit ang dami at ang ingay namin.”
On the other hand, Enchong and Shaina both consider the film memorable since they can highly relate with their roles–Enchong and his character CJ are both the youngest in their families, while Shaina and her role Gabbie both grew up with their elder sisters who are all ‘women of strength.’
Enchong shared that because of “Four Sisters And A Wedding,” he was able to experience having sisters. “Noong una, hindi ako masyadong nakaka-relate sa kuwento kasi wala talaga akong ate sa totoong buhay. Pero binigay nilang apat ‘yung masayang experience na ‘yun sa akin,” he said. “And I think lahat ng bunso makaka-relate sa struggle ni CJ. Dahil kapag bunso ka, kahit gaano ka na katanda, iisipin pa rin ng mga kapatid mo at ng mga magulang mo na baby ka pa rin. Sa movie, pinapatunayan ko sa mga ate ko na matanda na ako, I can decide for myself, at pwede niyo na akong bigyan ng opportunity to decide on my own.”
Shaina, meanwhile, said that the story of the Salazar siblings is really familiar to her since Magdayao family has ‘four sisters,’ where she is the youngest. “Definitely, every Filipino viewer can relate to its story. Ako mismo nakaka-relate since apat kaming magkakapatid na babae at bilang bunso I always see them as women of grace and strength, my superwomen,” Shaine opened up. “At tulad ng family namin sa movie, ‘yung pamilya ko sa real life ay hindi naman perpekto pero nagpapasalamat ako dahil hindi nawawala ‘yung pagmamahal at respeto namin sa isat-isa especially sa mga magulang namin and for that I am very very blessed and thankful.”
Will Teddie, Bobbie, Alex and Gabbie succeed in disuading their baby brother CJ from marrying his three-month girlfriend, Princess? Are CJ’s four sisters not yet ready to let him go? Are they truly trying to fix their brother’s life? Or do they need to fix their own lives first?
Connie Reyes, Angeline Quinto and Sam Milby have a special participation in “Four Sisters and A Wedding.” Also part of the film are Carmi Martin, Buboy Garovillo, Bernard Palanca, and Janus del Prado.
Star Cinema’s special kick-off movie offering for its 20th anniversary celebration, “Four Sisters and A Wedding,” will hit cinemas nationwide on June 26, 2013.
