Sara Geronimo, Matteo Guidicilli

SARAH Geronimo and BF Matteo Guidicelli are currently in Bali, a favorite tourist destination in Indonesia, to celebrate their 6th anniversary as sweethearts. They’re just all by themselves, which means Sarah’s mom no longer acts as chaperone for her and they’re now allowed to go out of the country on their own.

Their fans are now hoping they would walk down the aisle soon, but both Sarah and Matteo have said that they’re not in a hurry to settle down yet and build their own family. Sarah is just taking a short break from the shooting of her new movie which already has a playdate late this coming October. We're told two more days and it's in the can.

This is “Unforgettable”, the story idea of which came from Sarah herself and she specified that she doesn’t want to have any leading man in it. She plays an autistic girl who has a dog as her best friend, so this is like those past hit movies about the unique relationship of a human being with a dog, like “A Dog’s Purpose”, “Marley and Me”, “A Dog’s Way Home”. “A Dog’s Journey”, etc.

The trailer of the movie is now available online and it shows Sarah journeying with her dog to Baguio to visit her ailing grandmother, played by Gina Pareno. She believes that when her Lola sees the dog, she will regain her health and good health as it as happened to her before.

The trailer shows Sarah walking on a long bridge in Ilocos. It turns out she took the wrong bus and ended up not in Baguio but in Ilocos, so she is just walking her way back to Baguio. Along the way, she meets Regine Velasquez, who owns a carinderia with many costumers, but she has no helper at all, so Sarah and her smart dog become her assistants.

Also in the movie’s cast are Ara Mina and Meg Imperial as Sarah’s older sisters who are looking for her after she got lost. This is written and directed by Jun Lana, who’s now scoring a big hit in the rollicking comedy, ‘The Panti Sisters’, the topgrosser in the current Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino. It's really doing well at the box office and we heard its P13 million earnings on opening day is way above all the other entries that are now struggling looking for more moviegoers to help sustain their exhibition in mall theaters.
