Do Revenge is a comedic Netflix Original Film starring Camila Mendes, Maya Hawke, Austin Abrams, Rish Shah, Paris Berelc, Alisha Boe, and Ava Capri. It was directed by Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, who worked alongside Celeste Ballard to write the screenplay. The film was released on September 16th and has since been a massive success on the popular streaming platform. It is rated TV-MA and is recommended for teen and young adult audiences.

The plot of Do Revenge was inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train, a 1951 psychological thriller. Protagonist Drea Torres is at the peak of her high school career when something humiliating gets leaked to the entire school. Eleanor Levetan is a new transfer student who is dreading having to attend school with her old bully, Carissa Jones. After meeting each other at tennis camp, Drea and Eleanor form a secret friendship to get revenge on each other’s enemies.

As a viewer, I can confidently say that this film is one-hundred percent worth the watch. It had an excellent storyline with plot twists that kept the viewer hooked.
