The Psychic, The Ghost, and The Husband

The story revolves around Stacey (Alex Gonzaga), a psychic, who starts hearing Sara (Kylie Verzosa), who has been dead for a year now. Sara’s husband Nathan (Xian Lim), however, hasn’t moved on yet. Sara’s spirit seeks out Stacey for help since she is the only person who can hear her.

The journey Nathan and Stacey go through is adorable and heartwarming. While a lot of rom-coms have a funny premise, Love The Way U Lie has a plot that not only has a comic note to it but also a sweet message.

In the process of helping Nathan move on, sparks begin to fly between him and Stacey and it brings with itself the strong feeling of loss of a beloved and gain of a lover. While the character of Stacey at the first go looks all jolly, there is more depth to her. She has her own fair share of struggles and pain that she hides beneath her smile with perfection. Her character is relatable in every sense.
