My Amanda, an upcoming film starring Alessandra de Rossi and Piolo Pascual, is set to premiere globally on Netflix on July 15.

My Amanda tells the story of longtime best friends TJ and Amanda, who go by the pet names “Fuffy” and “Fream” respectively as they explore different facets of their friendship while also dealing with their own complicated relationships.

The film, written by Alessandra, also marks her directorial debut. It is produced by Piolo’s production company Spring Films, with veteran filmmaker Joyce Bernal as creative producer.

“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,” Alessandra said, referring to the hit 2017 film she starred in alongside Empoy Marquez.

“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,” she continued.

ROAD TRIP. Aside from starring in ‘My Amanda,’ Piolo Pascual and Alessandra de Rossi also produce and direct the film.

Piolo added: “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.”

My Amanda was previously set to premiere in 2020, but it was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. – Rappler.com
