FOLLOWING her successful, Netflix-hit film “Through Night and Day,” Alessandra de Rossi comes back in the world’s leading streaming platform with another movie, “My Amanda,” this time with Piolo Pascual.
My Amanda, which is also the directorial debut of Alessandra and will be co-produced by Piolo, 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.
Alessandra shared that the background story of this movie is what makes it very special to her. It also serves as a gift to her good friend, Piolo, and Spring Films for turning her life around after Kita Kita, her other hit film in 2018.
“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. As the famous saying goes, I love you Pioooooolooooo!” shared Alessandra.
Piolo, for his part, said My Amanda takes the audience on a road trip and captures the sudden shifts in life.
“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,” he said.
Creative Producer Bb. Joyce Bernal adds, “Working with Alex and PJ for a movie about a rare, and honest relationship is learning to be vulnerable again to the risk of losing what you have, for each other, for the moment and sharing something deeper that I discover as we went along together. It’s a joy ride to self.”
The film also features Luz Valdez, KC Montero, and Helga Krapf. My Amanda will start exclusively streaming globally on Netflix on July 15.
