What would you do if your fiancé asked you to get married in your home country, but you know that the moment you land your ex (and love of your life) is going to try to win you back? This is exactly what happened to Valentina, played by Marimar Vega, in Pantelion Films newest “La Boda de Valentina,” in theatres February 9, 2018.
Valentina seems to have the perfect life in New York, with a perfect job and a perfect boyfriend, Jason Tate (Ryan Carnes) — far, far away from her scandalous political family in Mexico. When Jason proposes to her and wants to go to home to meet the family she has been keeping a secret, her two worlds clash. At first she refuses to go but unforeseen circumstances force her to go to the motherland.
As soon as she arrives, she discovers that her family set her up in a fake marriage with her ex-boyfriend, Angel (Omar Chaparo) to help her father’s political campaign. Even though the sham was supposed to be temporary and kept secret, she soon realizes that the “divorce” papers are not going to be easy to get. Meanwhile in New York, Jason senses that there’s something wrong and decides to surprise her. It is then that he meets Angel and realizes he’s still madly in love with Valentina and is willing to do anything to win her over.
Between arguments and fights, Angel and Jason want to prove who Valentina has had the most fun with. Jason took her to a Coldplay concert but with Angel she drank a whole bottle of tequila, Angel took her to swim in Cozumel but she went scuba diving in Aruba with Jason. Somehow by the time the night had ended they had gotten drunk together and even started a fight with some Lucha Libre wrestlers.
Valentina quickly realizes that she cannot run away from her past and that she needs to decide who her heart belongs to.
