"My Candidate" is a 2016 Filipino romantic comedy movie starring Derek Ramsay, Shaina Magdayao and Iza Calzado. This pinoy film braves theatrical release as it goes up against two other rom-coms this May. The John Lloyd Cruz-Jennylyn Mercado starrer, Just the 3 of Us, and the fifth James Reid-Nadine Lustre movie, This Time.
Synopsis: Ivy league graduate and political scion Congressman SONNY SUAREZ has all that it takes to become a Senator - except for the one thing that gets you elected: charisma.
Determined to improve his lackluster showing at the polls, Sonny's team hires BILLIE PONO, a smart and sassy life coach. With Billie at the helm of his "personality make over", Sonny learns to be more authentic. And he also finds himself falling for his coach.
The campaign proves to be an uphill battle with many twists and turns, specially due to the sudden emergence of VERA SANCHEZ, Sonny's ex, who has declared her candidacy for the Senate.
Will Sonny emerge victorious?
