Love letters are on their way to becoming a dying breed of ligaw methods (panliligaw is on its way to death too, but that's a subject for another feature), but in the 2014 classic "Starting Over Again" we saw Piolo Pascual and Toni Gonzaga's characters Marco and Ginny try and revive this lost art of showing affection through "love emails", all thanks to the still-unfortunately-fictional website letterlater.com!
Today, as we celebrate Letter Writing Day, look back on the time before God invented cheesy Instagram posts with this unforgettable film!
First off, we have dear, handsome, driven Marco. Marco wrote his "love email" during a time of great pain. Having just broken up with his long-term love Ginny, he chronicled their relationship from its endearing beginnings to its heartbreaking end. He'd written the letter four years prior to the events of the film, and its raw emotion is the perfect bomb that made Ginny's seemingly perfect present life (professionally, anyway) implode into shambles.
And then we come to Ginny, who wrote her letter during college when she was still attempting to catch the attention of her very cute, "kamuka ni Papa P" professor. It's a classic love letter in a way: Ginny put her heart and soul into paper and sent it to the person she loved in hopes that he will return her feelings. The letter, and of course, Ginny's classic kakulitan, worked. Perhaps a little too well, but, you know what they say, "be careful what you wish for."
