Starry Starry Store kicks off 2010 with U.S. theatrical of “I Love You, Goodbye”
( BAS-CBN Global )
Starring Gabby, Angelica, Derek and Kim, film to screen in 7 U.S. cities this January

REDWOOD CITY, CA, December 21 2009 –ABS-CBN International’s Starry Starry Store starts the New Year with a roar in the Year of the Tiger by bringing to the U.S. Star Cinema’s official entry to the 35th Metro Manila Film Festival. Screening in the first two weeks of January 2010 is I Love You, Goodbye in San Francisco, Los Angeles-Cerritos, San Diego, Las Vegas, Jersey City, Honolulu and Seattle.

I Love You, Goodbye is the comeback film after a five-year absence for the much acclaimed director, Laurice Guillen, the genius behind Filipino cinema classics like Kasal, Salome, Init sa Magdamag, Santa-Santita and Tanging Yaman. She was tapped by Star Cinema to go against the usual comedic favorites for the annual Metro Manila Film Festival with a stirring drama and complex love story starring what is probably the current best mix of RP’s most interesting stars.

Gabby Concepcion, who is presently enjoying TV success with the top-rating Dahil May Isang Ikaw, returns to the big screen after over a decade of absence. Angelica Panganiban has been wowing critics and audiences alike with her smooth transformation from an award-winning child star to sexy and versatile leading lady status on TV and in film. Former MTV VJ and model Derek Ramsay is riding the heels of the domestic and international success of And I Love You So and his well-received appearances on TV dramas. People are keeping an eye on Kim Chiu as the country’s top female teenage star ditches her sweet image and unleashes her dark side for the role of a rebellious daughter in I Love You, Goodbye.

Gabby is Dr. Adrian Benitez, who, after divorce, finds new love in Angelica’s character, Lizelle Jimenez. Lizelle loves Adrian but feels like a stranger in his high society world, especially with Adrian’s rebellious teenage daughter, Ysa (played by Kim), making sure Lizelle doesn’t feel part of the family. To make matters worse for Lizelle, she falls for photographer Gary Angeles (Derek) who is dating Ysa. Lizelle is caught in a tangle of secrets, truths and lies but she has to make a choice between the two men she loves and face the consequences of that choice.

“The year 2009, which coincided with TFC’s 15th and Star Cinema’s 16th anniversaries, was a blockbuster year for Starry Starry Store,” said Kerwin Du, ABS-CBN International’s Head of Theatricals. “All our premieres were sold out and our regular theatricals had very encouraging returns. We hope to continue this winning streak for the New Year. I believe we’re off to the right start with I Love You, Goodbye which has quality film entertainment written all over it. We want to offer simply the best to our audience.”
