Imagine surrending your smart phone at a dinner table with friends, and your personal business is out there. That's the concept behind the Spanish comedy, PERFECT STRANGERS (PERFECTOS DESCONOCIDOS). While the trailer plays more like a drama, the official synopsis calls it a comedy. PERFECT STRANGERS (PERFECTOS DESCONOCIDOS) opens January 11, 2019 in moderate release, from Lionsgate and Pantelion Films.
From Mexican auteur Manolo Caro ( THE HOUSE OF FLOWERS) comes PERFECT STRANGERS (PERFECTOS DESCONOCIDOS), the electrifying story about a seemingly simple dinner. When a group of best friends get together during a lunar eclipse to share an intimate dinner in the tasteful house of Eva (Cecilia Suarez) and Antonio (Bruno Bichir), they suspect it's just another typical night until the hostess proposes a game. All guests must lay their cell phones on the table and read aloud all incoming messages and answer all incoming phone calls in front of the entire group. What begins as a provocative party game quickly becomes a wild ride full of twists and "textual tension" in this electrifying over the top comedy about the secrets we all carry in our pockets.
The stellar ensemble cast includes Cecilia Suárez ("Overboard," "The House of Flowers"), Manuel García-Rulfo ("Magnificent Seven," "Murder in the Orient Express"), Mariana Treviño ("Overboard," "Club de Cuervos"), Miguel Rodarte (Sundance winner "Time Share," "Saving Private Perez"), Bruno Bichir ("Narcos," "DC Comics Titans"), Ana Claudia Talancón ("Crime of Father Amaro," "Fast Food Nation") and Spanish newcomer Franky Martin. PERFECT STRANGERS is directed and adapted by Manolo Caro based on the original screenplay by Paolo Genovese.
