Maya Hawke and Camila Mendes team up in Netflix’s Do Revenge

Maya Hawke and Camila Mendes have made their names playing teenagers on Stranger Things and Riverdale, respectively. So it’s only fitting that between seasons of their hit shows that Netflix has teamed up the actresses behind Robin Buckley and Veronica Lodge for a new dark comedy, Do Revenge. This time, they’re playing high school students who make a pact to get revenge on each other’s enemies in order to escape suspicion.

If that sounds like Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train, it’s not a coincidence. The film fully embraces that comparison, with considerably fewer murders.

Unlike the theatrical Strangers on a Train or the novel that inspired it, neither Drea (Mendes) nor Eleanor (Hawke) is a murderous psychopath. They also seem to be fully engaged in helping each other get a little payback. As depicted in the trailer, Drea was once one of the most popular girls in her school until her “perfect” boyfriend betrayed her by sharing her topless pics with the entire student body. As for Eleanor, she is a young lesbian who was falsely accused of preying upon another girl at her school. With their own lives in shambles, Drea and Eleanor realize that they can achieve their retribution by working together.

3 underrated movies you need to watch in May 2024
A man leans against a wall in The Fall Guy.

April was a bit of a low-key month for movies, but there was still plenty of pleasure to be had at the theater. Indies were well-represented with the surreal sci-fi movie The Beast while multiplexes enjoyed the social commentary and IMAX action set pieces of Alex Garland's appropriately divisive Civil War.

May, however, will be a different story, as the summer season is set to begin on May 3 with the premiere of The Fall Guy, an action comedy starring everyone's favorite actor of the moment, Ryan Gosling. May will also see apes conquesting another planet, a biopic about Amy Winehouse that's already enraged people on social media, a different take on the slasher movie genre, and one of the most highly anticipated prequels of the last decade. Oh, and Garfield's back. Again. Which of these are worth seeing? Find out by checking out our top three picks out of all the movies scheduled for release in May 2024.
