Have you ever been simultaneously courted by two handsome men, like Chinggay (Jodi Sta. Maria) in “Achy Breaky Hearts”? Or are you in your glow-up era like Sophia (Liza Soberano) in “Just the Way You Are”? Or have you been reunited with your long-lost brothers and sisters, like the Jackstone quadruplets (Vice Ganda) in “Girl Boy Bakla Tomboy”? If yes, then it’s confirmed that you’re in your main character moment!
But these main characters did not easily have their happy endings. As for Peter Jackstone in “Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy”, he has to endure the pain of not having a dad while helping his mom provide for their extended family. In the end, he finds forgiveness in his heart and even sacrifices his own liver for his sick brother, Mark Jackstone.
In “Achy Breaky Hearts”, Chinggay is torn between an ex-lover who cheated on her, and someone new who’s still hung up with his ex. Dealing with the pressure of getting older with no one by her side, and the pressure of choosing between the two guys, Chinggay gets to thinking she’s better off single and decides to wait for the right timing for love, when things aren’t too complicated in her life anymore.
With all these, it can be said that a main character learns to love themselves first before anything or anyone else. And as the main character of your own life story, we suggest that you love yourself too. The “Main Character Moments” playlist gathers movies that will keep inspiring you to practice self-love, and these films include, “Just the Way You Are”, “Past Tense”, “Kasal”, “Everything About Her”, “Starting Over Again”, “The Achy Breaky Hearts”, and “Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy”.
