Manila, June 8, 2020: After announcing a robust film slate for Independence Day in June, Netflix today announced that it will stream On Vodka, Beers, and Regrets starting July 5 in the Philippines. Netflix is continuing to build a home for Pinoy stories with this popular film from Viva Communications, joining other recently announced titles – Pinoy Sunday, Sunod, Lola Igna, Untrue, and Ordinary People.
On Vodka, Beers, and Regrets stars Bela Padilla, JC Santos, Matteo Guidicelli, and Kean Cipriano. It is written and directed by Irene Villamor. The film follows a washed-up actress and former child star Jane Pineda, who battles with love, chances and alcoholism as her career plummets to rock bottom.
“We, at Viva, are very proud of On Vodka, Beers and Regrets. The film tackles a sensitive topic with a clever and different blend of humor, romance and drama. It is part of Viva’s thrust for genre expansion and Netflix is the perfect partner being the pioneer in disrupting viewer habits and revolutionizing the art of storytelling,” said Vincent Del Rosario – President and COO, Viva Communications, Inc.
These films follow the success of other Pinoy titles on Netflix, including Eerie, The Girl Allergic to Wi-Fi, and Miss Granny, which were among the top ten most popular titles in the Philippines in 2019, as well as the December 2019 release of Filipino Netflix Film Dead Kids by award-winning director Mikhail Red.
