Pia Wurtzbach lights up rom-com in ‘My Perfect You’

/ 12:59 AM March 28, 2018

Gerald Anderson and Pia Wurtzbach star in “My Perfect You.”

DALY CITY, California -– Pia Wurtzbach, crowned Miss Universe 2015, teams up with lead actor Filipino American Gerald Anderson, in a romantic comedy with a twist — “My Perfect You.”

The Star Cinema film is directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina, who is dubbed the “blockbuster director” because of her track record of directing top-grossing films in the Philippines.

“My Perfect You” is the story of Burn (Anderson), a man who experiences a series of failures and disappointments in life and decides to get away from it all. As he escapes, he meets the perky and spirited Abi (Wurtzbach), a resort-owner trying to revive her business. Abi’s perennial optimism initially annoys the down-and-out Burn, until he realizes that he enjoys the time spent with her.

Audiences will see how the seeming lightness of the rom-com genre is effectively used as a channel to convey a deeper message of how one can handle life’s challenges, no matter how mentally or emotionally crippling they can be.

Burn’s blue funk contradicts with Abi’s rose-colored glasses, yet, there is superb chemistry between the two lead actors.

The backdrop of the lush and breathtaking views of Masinloc, Zambales adds to the charm of “My Perfect You.” The small town with first-class natural wonders is known for its rivers, mangroves, and waterfalls, among other things.

“My Perfect You” is showing in theaters across the U.S. and Canada starting March 23.
