It’s time to binge-watch these “best-friends-to-lovers” titles on Netflix!
Carlo Aquino and Lovi Poe have joined forces for the first time in a film. Carlo and Lovi play longtime best friends Kurt and Charlie in “Seasons” who agree to assist each other in finding their “lifetimes.” The perfect recipe for a chaotic love tale includes an impromptu road trip, the realization that friendships may be more than meets the eye, and a difficult predicament that further complicates an already chaotic setup.
So, if you’re a devotee of the trope, here are six more films on Netflix with the same theme that you can binge-watch before Seasons’ release on July 7!
