It’s all fun and games until your ultimate secret is revealed.

In a remake of a successful Italian film, the Spanish-language Perfectos Desconocidos or Perfect Strangers explores the dangerous cell phone game at the dinner table. The film has an all-star Mexican cast with Bruno Bichir, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Miguel Rodarte, Cecilia Suarez, Ana Claudia Talancon and Mariana Trevino. The film is directed from one of the most rising Mexican directors Manolo Caro (The House of Flowers).

Here’s the synopsis:

When a group of best friends get together during a lunar eclipse to share an intimate dinner in the tasteful house of Eva (Cecilia Suarez) and Antonio (Bruno Bichir), 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.

LRM Online had an exclusive sit-down interview with actors Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Bruno Bichir and director Manolo Caro. We discussed about the remake of the movie and the chemistry of the cast.

Perfectos Desconocidos or Perfect Strangers will be playing nationwide in the United States this Friday.
