Maya Hawke and Camila Mendes star in the Netflix dark comedy Do Revenge directed by Jennifer Kaytin Robinson which is now streaming globally.
The official synopsis reads: “popular Drea wants revenge on her boyfriend for publishing her sex tape, and exchange student Eleanor is haunted by a rumor. When they’ve done you wrong, don’t just get even. Do Revenge.” Drea (Mendes) and Eleanor (Hawke) vie to go undercover and get revenge for one another to stay under the radar at the lush Rosehill Country Day Prep School. What is it about high school that brings out the revenge in us all?
Austin Abrams, Rish Shah, Talia Ryder, Ava Capri, Jonathan Daviss, Maia Reficco, Paris Berelc, Alisha Boe, Sophie Turner, and Sarah Michelle Gellar also star in Do Revenge.
Do Revenge is a vibrant, campy tale of getting even filled with jokes that will keep you laughing, twists that will keep you guessing until the end, and costumes you wish were in your closet (shout out to costume designer Alana Morshead). The only bad thing I have to say about this movie is while Sophie Turner was perfectly used in the film, I wanted more of her character. The few scenes she had were comedic gold and she was grossly underused.
Nonetheless, the theme of revenge and high school is nothing new, and there are several films for you to get into if you enjoyed Do Revenge. Here’s 6 high school themed movies centered around payback for you to check out after Do Revenge.
