Let’s play a game then. We’ll all put our phones on the table…

Not just a box office hit but also a national phenomenon, Paolo Genovese’s latest dramedy has got the whole of Italy asking: How well do we really know those closest to us?

Fuelled by a fiendishly clever screenplay and an all-star cast, Perfect Strangers gathers a group of good friends around the dining table – three 30-something couples and a bachelor – where one suggests they make all SMSs and phone calls public across the course of the night. The reason: to prove they have nothing to hide.

What seems like an innocent experiment results in some eye-opening disclosures – even a swapping of phones in a desperate concealment attempt – that shows how performance dominates our public lives.

As Genovese says, “Smartphones have become a fundamental object, perhaps the only one that we always carry with us – our ‘black box’.” Never has the time been so ripe to offer such a cinematic take on a classic morality conundrum.

PERFECT STRANGERS screens from January 26 at Cinema Paradiso & Luna on SX with limited screenings at Luna and Camelot Outdoor.

“Right on the zeitgeist of the bourgeoisie. A major talking point in Italy, remakes in other languages seem virtually assured.”
Variety
“Not to be missed. A bittersweet comedy about secrets and lies in the age of smartphones that makes you laugh and think. It’s impossible to remain indifferent.”
