Named Best Film at the Donatellos, (the Italian Oscars), Perfect Strangers is a hilarious comedy of manners built around mobile phones and the secrets they hold. The perfect strangers are actually seven long-time friends (three couples and one bachelor) who gather one night for a dinner party and agree that no private calls or messaging will disrupt their evening. Instead, in a communal fit of ‘we have nothing to hide’ bravado, they place their phones on the table and all incoming calls and texts are shared with the group. (Letting a caller know they’re on speaker is considered cheating). But what seems at first like an innocent and playful distraction between friends, quickly turns into something more as the messages start to reveal some eye-opening secrets and how little they truly know each other.
