“MY AMANDA,” a film starring Alessandra De Rossi and Piolo Pascual, will debut July 15 on Netflix.
“My Amanda” tells the story of two unusually close friends sharing every aspect of their lives together. But, as their own worlds change and evolve, their bond remains the only constant.
In the movie, Piolo plays TJ who goes by the nickname “Fuffy,” while Alessandra plays Amanda with the nickname “Fream.”
The movie is written and directed by Alessandra, while it is produced by Piolo's production company Spring Films, with veteran filmmaker Joyce Bernal as creative producer.
“My Amanda” is Alessandra’s directorial debut.
In a virtual press conference on July 7, Alessandra shared that the story is “personal” to her.
“My guy best friend's name is TJ, and he's PJ. I just used the real name and even how we call each other, Fuffy and Fream, but of course, the story has nothing to do with real life. I just used the dynamics of the friendship because I wanted to share a different kind of love story. It's a friendship that's intimate and not superficial, rare and sincere,” she said.
Piolo added that, “It's a different take. It's a different take on a love story.”
To the viewers of “My Amanda,” Alessandra said, “Watch it with an open heart, no judgment, acceptance, and just don't say anything just like a true friend.”
Why do we have to watch My Amanda?
Piolo said, “My favorite quote for the film, I would say the relationship between TJ and Amanda is just an icing on the cake. What transpires through the course of time and what happens because of that relationship is the true gem of the film. That's why you have to watch it.”
