PERFECT STRANGERS – Israel

February 17 @ 10:00 am to approx. 12:00 pm

 

Seven childhood friends with a lot of shared history and experiences, and a mutual death from their past, meet for dinner to watch a rare lunar eclipse. Their standard bourgeois encounter takes an unexpected turn when they start playing a game that’ll change the course of their lives forever: each text message, call, or notification they receive on their phones – is revealed for all to see. Betrayals, lies, secrets and unresolved issues dating back 20 years simmer to the surface and put their long-standing friendships to the test.

The 2016 Italian film PERFCT STRANGERS, directed by Paolo Genovese, inevitably caused chaos, revealing affairs, an accidental pregnancy and closeted homosexuality. The film made more than $30m worldwide; its screenplay won a prize at the Tribeca Film Festival. It has since been remade in more than 20 countries.  This is 2023 recent updated version from Israel.
