About the film
From Mexican auteur Manolo Caro, creator of Netflix’s La Casa de Las Flores (The House of Flowers) comes PERFECTOS DESCONOCIDOS, the electrifying story about a seemingly simple dinner. When a group of best friends get together during a lunar eclipse to share an intimate dinner in the tasteful house of Eva and Antonio, they suspect it’s just another typical night until the hostess proposes a game. All guests must lay their cell phones on the table and read aloud all incoming messages and answer all incoming phone calls in front of the entire group. What begins as a provocative party game quickly becomes a wild ride full of twists and “textual tension” in this electrifying over the top comedy about the secrets we all carry in our pockets.
