Based on an Italian hit feature that has been remade 18 times, the Arabic version also stars award-winning Lebanese director/actor Nadine Labaki, Georges Khabbaz, Adel Karam, Fouad Yammine and Diamand Abou Abboud.

Directed by Wissam Smayra in his debut, the film’s story revolves around seven close friends who gather for dinner and decide to play a game where they all place their cell phones on the dinner table, agreeing to openly share every call, text and voice message as it comes. What starts out as fun quickly unfolds into an uncharted path of untold secrets that reveal more than the participants wish to share.

‘Perfect Strangers’, which is releasing this January in 190 countries, is produced by Front Row Filmed Entertainment, Film Clinic, Empire Entertainment and Yalla Yalla, and it is the first of many films produced by Front Row as part of a first look deal signed with Netflix.
