BY: Pilar Mateo

BECAUSE he and Maine Mendoza‘s bashers are growing by the numbers, much as actor Arjo Atayde want to tell the world and share his journey with his paramour, he has opted to stop talking about the experiences he shares with the actress.

Recently, from out-of-the-blue, they decided and tried hard to be incognito in their Star City escapade. Just wanted to feel what being “normal” was about. In juts a simple “babaw kaligayahan”. But the inggiteros and inggiteras lot didn’t like it!

So now that he has a project under Regal Entertainment with Jessy Mendiola, Arjo will just continue making his Princess happy but will not share nor talk ablut it anymore.

Arjo is proud of this next dramatic take he will share with the viewing public.

Will two people with opposing views about life come together and dare to take a leap? Is this the moment where one decision changes everything?

ABS-CBN stars Jessy Mendiola and Arjo Atayde top-bill the upcoming movie, Stranded, under Regal Entertainment, Inc. and directed by Ice Idanan.

Jessy plays the role of Julia, a woman who never imagined that one stormy night and meeting a stranger could change her life forever. Everything about her is stable; her career, her love life.

On the other hand, Spencer (played by Arjo) lives his life to the fullest, without direction. Upon being locked up in a building overnight, they discover things about themselves they never were there all along.

Julia thought she had everything planned, Spencer thought happiness is about being spontaneous. Julia’s long-suppressed longing for freedom, has a “to do list” on her notes, as shown in the trailer. She then gets them fulfilled by the spontaneous Spencer as they spend the night together, only the two of them.

The irony of it is that, despite their huge differences, Julia and Spencer get attracted with one another. Julia and Spencer realize that even if they have opposing views on certain aspects of their lives, they still have some things in common, one is they are searching for real happiness.

They realize that opposing views can still be a good thing because one can learn from the other, just as long as each one is willing to learn from the other.

In the movie, Julia is an old school, who believes that a relationship is a commitment. Meanwhile, Spencer is the type of guy who prefers to be happy-go-lucky and would rather be without the demands of a commitment. This is the premise of the movie that made the characters relevant these days.

Are Julia and Spencer willing to make compromises when it comes to love? Are they prepared for the turning points that can change their lives forever?
