‘Perfect Strangers’

jBI9CbQ.jpgA huge commercial and critical success in its native Italy, Perfect Strangers is a, mostly, laugh-out-loud comedy as seven best friends pool mobile phones around the dinner table. No secrets? Hardly.

Faltering friendships and relationships abound as texts and Messenger are shared, conversations placed on speaker. Discussions and arguments ensue as the friends-since-school discover they know very little about each other.

It’s a dark black comedy – raw nerves are touched and opinions can be challenging for audiences. The cast of seven give impeccable performances as director Paolo Genovese (Perfect Family, A Neapolitan Spell) keeps it contained within the claustrophobia of painful truths.
