An obsessed teenage fan finds herself inside a mansion with her celebrity idol she thought she knew and learns exactly why they say never meet your heroes.
Jane claims to be the number one fan of Paulo Avelino, every girl’s ultimate heartthrob. She is either super lucky or miserably unfortunate. Paulo appears at an event to promote his film. Jane goes to see him at the event and successfully sneaks into the back of his pickup truck. Eventually, Jane follows him home. Soon she finds out that Paulo is not the man she dreamed about. When nobody is watching, he is constantly swearing, trash-talking about his fans (or stans), and drinking and smoking non-stop. Fan Girl is not a comedy film. The giggle-inducing first part is soon followed by the emptiness of groupie life and serious questions of whether Jane can still be happy even when her idol turns out not to be as billed. Filipino star actor Paulo Avelino plays a fictional version of himself, a role involving male frontal nudity. This film’s conclusion is way far from “happily ever after,” which is rather unexpected in the films by Antoinette Jadaone, who is best known for her romantic movies with happy endings. (MOON Seok)
