The over-the-top comedy about the secrets we all carry in our pockets, Perfect Strangers, arrives on Digital and On Demand April 16 from Lionsgate. The dramedy tells the story of seven friends who submit to a dinner game, which starts as a provocative gag but quickly becomes a wild ride full of twists and “textual tension.” Adapted by director Manolo Caro (Netflix’s “The House of Flowers”) and based on the original screenplay by Paolo Genovese, Perfect Strangers will be available on Digital in both HD and SD for the suggested retail price of $9.99.
SYNOPSIS: From Mexican auteur Manolo Caro comes Perfect Strangers, 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 Suárez) and Alonso (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.
