Director: Paolo Genovese
Country: Italy
Year: 2016
Runtime: 94 mins
Genre: Comedy Drama

The multi award-winning new comedy of manners from Paolo Genovese is a fiendishly clever take on decorum in the age of modern technology, and poses the question: how well do we really know those close us?

The titular perfect strangers are actually seven long-time friends (three couples and one bachelor), all 40ish, who gather on a warm summer evening for a dinner party to watch a lunar eclipse. They agree that no private calls or messaging will disrupt their evening, and in a communal fit of 'we have nothing to hide' bravado, they place their devices on the table and declare that all incoming calls and texts are shared with the group (letting a caller know they're on speaker is considered a cheat). But what seems at first like an innocent and playful distraction between friends quickly turns into something more, as some eye-opening secrets about the partners and acquaintances opposite begin to emerge...
