We've got a new Pinoy rom-com coming to Netflix and it's sure to bring the kilig to our small screens. For those who love the friends-turned-lovers trope (I mean, who doesn't?), then My Amanda is just for you.
Here's all you need to know about My Amanda, the new Filipino romance flick coming to Netflix:
What's the plot of My Amanda about?
Here's the plot of the film, according to Netflix: "My Amanda tells the story of unusually close best friends TJ and Amanda, with pet names 'Fuffy' and 'Fream,' respectively, as they go through the motions of their relationship as long-time best friends while dealing with their own complicated relationships."
Speaking about her directorial debut, Alessandra shared how personal My Amanda is to her: "The background story of this movie is what makes this very special to me. It's a gift to my good friend Piolo and Spring Films—for turning my life around after Kita Kita. This movie is about friendship, and how much I treasure connections that are sincere, overwhelming, and that have a very profound impact, at least for me. There is no single or universal definition that could explain how much gratefulness a person experiences when another being gives you a chance to believe in yourself."
Piolo, on his part, is totally excited for people to see their special project: "I'm thrilled to share with our audiences, the feeling of being on the same journey with someone, in finding out what profound companionship can offer to the other and savor the love so sublimely expressed in this film. My Amanda takes you on a road trip."
