Lead Characters:

Ronaldo Valdez – He is a veteran actor who is in a showbiz career for almost five decades. One of his remarkable films is the “Sukob”, a horror film released in 2006. Ronaldo Valdez portrays the role of a sick father in “Seven Sundays”. His role as Captain Manuel was well-portrayed, from comedy to dramatic scenes.

Ronaldo Valdez

Aga Muhlach as Allan Bonifacio. He is indeed a versatile actor. He started his career at a very young age. His versatility was proven again with his role as a mentally-ill father in the 2019 film “Miracle in Cell No.7”. In Seven Sundays, Allan is the eldest son of Captain Manuel.

Aga Muhlach

Dingdong Dantes as Bryan Bonifacio, Capt. Manuel’s 2nd eldest son. Dingdong Dantes always satisfy the audience with his acting skills and charm. And I could say that he did well in this movie, portraying Bryan, the most successful among the children of Capt. Manuel.

Dingdong Dantes

Christine Reyes as Cha Bonifacio, the third eldest and the only female child. She portrays the role of a martyr wife and a good mother for her children. Christine Reyes showed her attention-catcher acting skills. Reyes is a product of the GMA TV Program, StarStruck. After winning, she became a model, endorser, and actress.

Christine Reyes

Enrique Gil as Dexter Bonifacio, the youngest son of Capt. Manuel. Dexter is a social media influencer. Unlike any other youngest child, dexter was the one who lacked attention from his father and siblings. Enrique Gil plays his role well, and also, his visuals make him more fitted to his role as an influencer.

Seven Sundays Plot Review

What are you willing to do for your family? How long can you pretend for them to stay?

In Seven Sundays, you might need tissues or handkerchief while watching. It is a hurtful yet heart-melting film about how a family reunited after a long time. It also tells a story of the siblings that hide their dissatisfaction with each other. I would also want to emphasize the choice of casts and the roles given to them, it was well chosen. The story revolves around the story of how Captain Manuel, the father makes his children get along with each other. You should also want to know-how Allen, Bryan, Cha, and Dexter removed the barriers between them that keep them away from each other.
