Star Cinema looks to have another hit love story on hand with the newly released "In the Name of Love," now showing on Guam at the Micronesia Mall Stadium Theatres.
The Filipino movie industry's self-effacing actor Aga Muhlach resurfaces in a romance this time with Angel Locsin by his side.
With barely anything to live for, Emman Toledo (Muhlach), a former dancer, is just about to start his life all over again. He holds the good memories of his past dearly, knowing he will never be able to bring back his better days.
An unlikely opportunity comes up when he is assigned to be the dance instructor for the upcoming Governor's Ball of the powerful political family of the Evelinos, a chance for him to rekindle his lost passion.
It will be at this ball where the engagement of the governor's son Dylan Evelino (Jake Cuenca), and Cedes Fernandez (Locsin) will be announced. Despite her hatred for the dirty politics, Cedes has no choice but to succumb to the decision of Dylan out of her indebtedness towards the family.
Emman is drawn towards Cedes from the first time she catches his eye. As their lives intertwine through dance, Emman and Cedes find themselves resisting an affair -- one that holds the truths to their painful pasts, and the memories of a boundless love.
From acclaimed director Olivia Lamasan, the movie is Star Cinema's 18th anniversary showpiece, says Star Media's Ted Neri.
