"DIE BEAUTIFUL" to be topbilled by Paolo Ballesteros!

Watch out for "DIE BEAUTIFUL" to be topbilled by Paolo Ballesteros (finally a solo lead role in film!), written and directed by Jun Robles Lana. This comedy-drama indie film is about a Filipino trans-woman (who loves to impersonate celebrities) with the dying wish to be buried as Lady Gaga. But then the body of Paolo’s character gets taken by a Chinese-Filipino family who dresses the trans-woman as a man in the funeral service. Gay friends steal the dead body, which they dress up every day to honor the last request.
