29th Galway Film Fleadh 11th – 16th July 2017
“Remakes will be rampant of this discomforting dramedy where friends play a game reading aloud incoming cell phone messages at a dinner party.”
How well do we really know those close to us? During a dinner party, seven friends decide to play a dangerous game. Each attendee places their cell phone on the table and agrees to make all texts and calls public in an attempt to prove that they have nothing to hide. What at first seems like a playful distraction between friends quickly turns into something much more toxic as the messages begin to reveal how little they may know about the partners and acquaintances surrounding them.
