Perfect Strangers

In Beirut, three couples and a single friend who are having dinner together decide to play a game: whenever they receive a phone call or text, it must be exposed to everyone. This remake of the 2016 Italian hit was the first Netflix film made entirely by Arab producers, depicting affluent middle-aged suburbanites who spend the evening sharing secrets and testing the limits of their relationships while emptying bottles of wine and waiting for a total lunar eclipse. Controversial in the Middle East upon its premiere, not least due to a gay subplot, but engaging, with a game cast.Ā
