Do Revenge on Netflix features performances deserving of their own status as cult classics. This dark teen comedy, which stars Maya Hawke and Camila Mendes, has vengeance and unhealthy female connections as its main themes.The plot begins when Queen Bee Drea, a character played by Camila Mendes, has one of her private movies released. As a result, Drea and a transfer student named Eleanor, played by Maya Hawke, come up with a scheme to carry out each other’s dirty deeds in order to wreak revenge on their respective foes.
The 1951 film Strangers on a Train by Alfred Hitchcock served as the basis for the plot. According to the movie’s summary, following a covert break-up caused by a sex tape that Drea (Camila Mandes) and Eleanor (Maya Hawke) leaked, the two decide to work together to take down each other’s oppressors.
The visuals immerse you in a world of blatantly bright colours that completely contradict the dark undertones laid throughout the film. The scene is set in a high school that resembles one from Clueless, with Sarah Michelle Gellar, who is best known for her role as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, serving as the headmistress.Despite being categorised as a teen movie, the movie tackles some very serious subjects, with its main messages being that victims are not to be believed and that men often get away with crimes rather easily.
The film is a resounding success among fans. On social media as soon as it was made available on Netflix, opinions and reviews began to circulate. Over 17,000 tweets on the movie have been made in the previous 24 hours on Twitter alone. The majority of viewers were impressed with the characters’ prominence and the plot of the film. The ingenious plot, funny one-liners, and haughty Maya Hawke and Camila Mendes characters were what left admirers in awe.
