During an interview on Monday, September 5, Marjorie Barretto showed her support for daughter Julia’s portrayal in Expensive Candy.

She said she prepared herself to watch Julia in doing mature roles which she believed her daughter worked hard for. This will be her first ever daring film.

“[But] I think I’m ready to watch this film,” she told ABS-CBN News. “I had to prepare myself for this. This is a grown-up Julia. But I’m sure this is a better version of her definitely. She really worked so hard for this project.”

Marjorie said she approved the script of the movie and she trusted her daughter with her decision.

“I read the script of ‘Expensive Candy’ and I approved it,” Marjorie said. “You raise your kids and you just wish that they are wise enough to make decisions. Julia is 25 years old. I trust her.

“Ang ganda ng script ng ‘Expensive Candy.’ This is Direk JP and Carlo Aquino, how can you go wrong?”

Expensive Candy is top-billed by Julia and Carlo Aquino. It is directed by Jason Paul Laxamana.

The movie tells the story of Candy (Julia), a sex worker. A poor teacher, Toto (Carlo Aquino), falls in love with her and she becomes his motivation to work hard.

The movie was given an R-13 rating by the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB).

Expensive Candy can be watched in cinemas starting September 14.

Also in the cast are Andre Yllana, Ashley Diaz, Francis Magundayao, Bob Jbeili, Denise Esteban, Quinn Carrillo, Ivan Padilla, AJ Muhlach, Keagan de Jesus, Aurora Sevilla and Marissa Sanchez.
