There have been numerous adaptations of the classic epistolary novel Dangerous Liaisons by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos, including for stage, film, and television. Amongst them are Dangerous Liaisons, Stephen Frears’s 1988 Academy Awards® and BAFTA Film Awards winner (starring Glenn Close, John Malkovich, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Uma Thurman), and the award-winning 1999 film Cruel Intentions (starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe, Reese Witherspoon, and Selma Blair) — both of which remain popular with streaming and linear audiences today.

Netflix’s Dangerous Liaisons (Les Liaisons Dangereuses) stars social media influencer Paola Locatelli as Célène, an idealistic 17-year-old student who is more interested in reading than in social networks. A believer in absolute love, she is engaged to Pierre (Aymeric Fougeron, What Pauline Is Not Telling You). However, Célène will be living apart from her fiancé for a while, leaving Paris for Biarritz, and her life will never be the same.

At her new school, Célène is quickly confronted by the evil elite, a nasty clique ruled by former big-screen star and Instagram queen Vanessa (Ella Pellegrini, L’école de la vie) and celebrity surfer Tristan (Simon Rérolle, Research Unit). Tristan is both dangerous and seductive, and Célène falls in love with him — and has no clue that she is at the center of a cruel bet between Tristan and Vanessa…

Dangerous Liaisons, a Netflix Film, premieres globally on Friday, July 8, exclusively on Netflix. (You can set a reminder for it now.)
