Drama thriller Aurora, which stars Anne Curtis, has been acquired by Netflix and now available on the platform of the streaming giant.
Produced by Viva Films, a Viva Communications Inc., company, Aurora premiered last December at the Metro Manila Film Festival where it was one of the top-grossers.
The story follows Leana (Curtis) who lives peacefully on the island with her younger sister Rita. Everything changes when a ship named Aurora runs aground on the rocks near their vicinity. To make money, Leana agrees to the request of the grieving relatives to go in search of bodies from the ship.
Unknown to them, there was really no need for her to do so because the deceased cargo has already decided to return to the shore.
Directed by Yam Laranas and from the screenplay by Gin de Mesa, Aurora is the second Curtis starrer to be on Netflix. A year ago, Erik Matti’s BuyBust, where she plays a hard-hitting cop, was also picked up by the global streaming giant.
