PERFECT STRANGERS
PERFETTI SCONOSCIUTI
2016, True Colors, 97 min, Italy, Dir: Paolo Genovese

At one time or another, we’ve all been to a dinner that was interrupted by someone’s phone - but what if everyone there got to hear the call? That’s the ingenious premise behind this David di Donatello winner for Best Film, where seven friends gather and play a party game in which the secrets (and tensions) escalate. Kasia Smutniak, Alba Rohrwacher, Marco Giallini and Valerio Mastandrea are among the talented ensemble cast. With its finger firmly on the pulse of the universal fear of exposure, PERFECT STRANGERS has become a sensation in Italy and has been sold internationally.
