The glittery musical romance, set to the hits of the iconic Indigo Girls, is showing exclusively in Ayala Malls Cinemas starting June 5

Happy Pride Month! This happy and colorful month of June, Ayala Malls Cinemas exclusively brings “Glitter & Doom,” a unique and captivating film, at their theaters. This exclusive event underscores Ayala Malls Cinemas’ commitment to offering moviegoers distinctive and high-quality cinematic experiences.

The film, whose cast includes Ming-Na Wen, Tig Notaro, Missy Pyle and Alan Cammish, proudly counts as one of its stars Filipino actor Alex Diaz. “I’m very happy to have ‘Glitter and Doom’ come to the Philippines exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas just in time for Pride Month,” says Diaz, whose local entertainment credits include appearances in “Ero” and “Ero: The Series,” “Oh, Mando!” and fan favorite movies “Just the Way You Are” and “She’s Dating the Gangster.” “This movie is just such a feel good film with a beautiful soundtrack and stellar cast. The process from landing the role a few years ago to now being able to share it with my kababayans has been the journey of a lifetime.

“I hope when people watch this, they feel proud, I hope they feel seen and most of all, I hope they have fun! It’s a fun movie and the music is really catchy!”

Alex Diaz and Alan Cammish in “Glitter & Doom”

In “Glitter & Doom,” serious musician Doom (Cammish) and free-spirited circus kid Glitter (Diaz) start a budding summer relationship filled with camping trips, late-night conversations, and plenty of song and dance. Their relationship is put to the test as they deal with trying to make it in the music biz, their mothers (Ming-Na Wen and Missi Pyle), and finding what feeds each of their souls and dreams. The supporting cast boasts queer talent that includes Tig Notaro (“Army of the Dead”), Lea DeLaria (“Orange is the New Black”), “Drag Race” alum Peppermint and Indigo Girls Amy Ray and Emily Saliers. 

Watch the trailer:

The movie, billed as a “fantastical queer romance,” features 25 songs by the Indigo Girls, including “Power of Two,” a staple in high school playlists back in the ’90s, and “Closer to Fine,” which had a recent resurgence in popularity thanks to an iconic character singing the song during a road trip in last year’s “Barbie.” The Grammy-winning duo composed a new original song for the film as well, titled “What We Wanna Be.”

The Indigo Girls is a folk rock duo composed of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers. Said Saliers in an exclusive interview with Variety, “We immediately loved the script for ‘Glitter & Doom’ and became even more enamored as we watched the film grow and heard the production and arrangements of our songs,” said Saliers. “It’s an honor to be included in this artful and heartfelt story of misfits finding love.”

In the same interview, Ray said that “What We Wanna Be” was “inspired by the film’s characters and by my own experience of peeling off the layers of things I have built over the years to shield me from pain or even my own truth.”

X-Men's Nicholas Hoult In The Midst Of Royal Rumble In “THE FAVOURITE”

Nicholas Hoult dons outlandish outfits and puts on heavy wig in this year’s frontrunner Oscar contender and entertaining royal rumble movie “The Favourite” as Robert Harvey, chief minister to Queen Anne played by Best Actress nominee, Olivia Colman.

Gout-ridden and beset by grief over the loss of no fewer than 17 children, Anne relies on her only confidant, Lady Sarah Churchill (Rachel Weisz), who keeps the Privy Purse and offers much more than guidance in the matters of state. Her relationship with the Queen is as intimate as it comes, but when she introduces her downtrodden cousin, Abigail Hill (Emma Stone), to court, she soon discovers a rival for Anne’s affections, and so begins a struggle for power and love that might threaten the monarchy itself.
