A more mature and versatile Kathryn Bernardo brought tears, broke expectations and blossomed into a full-fledged actress in her latest big screen offering The Hows of Us with perennial leading man Daniel Padilla.
Kathryn has been continuously wowing the moviegoers for her exemplary performance as the aspiring doctor who gave a huge portion of her life for her seven-year romance with the aspiring musician.
One of the most praised moments in the latest Cathy Garcia-Molina opus was the crucial jeepney and final scene where George (Kathryn) had to choose between her dream and her love for Primo (Daniel). According to the director, Kathryn winged that scene with just a single take.
Netizens raved about how the film has elevated Kathryn’s artistry and how it proved her doubters wrong about what she can offer this business. Her remarkable performance impressed many with some netizens claiming that only Kathryn could portray such kind of emotional role for she cried excellently on the film particularly on the last scene.
Maturity certainly became Kathryn as the actress readily did scenes, which she’s not known for doing in the past, among them cracking some expletives and showing off her sultry side.
The latest Cathy Garcia-Molina blockbuster hit has earned over P36 million on its opening day and almost P300 million on its opening weekend, which is the highest regular opening day ticket sales that the tandem has raked in out of the eight films that they have headlined to date. The whopping second and third-day box office sales also saw a doubling of figures and sold-out cinema screenings much to the moviegoers’ satisfaction. The Hows of Us is currently screening in over 435 cinemas as of press time.
While their past films have focused mostly on bringing out kilig, The Hows of Us brought out Kathryn’s depth and openness to take on roles that are very much realistic and relatable.
