“Itim ang lipstick niya subalit mabait siya. Sadya akong namangha sa angkin niyang ganda,” Fidel writes in one of his poems for Stella.
Fidel limits his sentence to three words so he doesn’t stutter due to his speech defect. He doesn’t stutter however whenever he reads.
“Throughout his four years in college, Fidel, a stuttering student, tries to finish 100 poems dedicated to Stella, an aspiring but frustrated rock star, to win her heart,” according to Cinema Bravo.
In this Filipino rom-com directed by Jason Paul Laxamana, Fidel makes a hundred poems just for Stella, “para ma-bilib siya sa ‘kin.”
Trouble erupts when Fidel (JC Santos) makes Stella (Bela Padilla) choose between her one true passion, music, and her studies.
The movie comes out nationwide August 16 and it’s got us pretty kilig inside.
