Netflix is taking Irene Villamor‘s new film, “On Vodka, Beers, and Regrets”, to its own virtual backyard as the film makes its streaming debut on the platform, July 5, 2020.

Since the future of moviegoing remains up in the air due to COVID-19, VIVA opts to release the film on Netflix. This trend tracks, in that almost all of Villamor’s films are already on Netflix, including “Ulan”, “Sid & Aya (Not a Love Story)“, and “Meet Me In St. Gallen”.

The synopsis for “On Vodka, Beers, and Regrets” reads:

A washed-up actress and former child star Jane Pineda (Bela Padilla) battles with love, chances, and alcoholism as her career plummets to rock bottom.

The film received positive reviews from critics and reviewers, with Oggs Cruz calling it “a mannered film, elegantly paced from start to end” in his review published on Rappler.

The film stars Bela Padilla, JC Santos, Matteo Guidicelli, and Kean Cipriano. It is written and directed by Irene Villamor. Check out the full trailer below.
