I’m starting to like the power games going on between Netflix and the Arab world. “Perfect Strangers” (“Ashab Wala A’azz”) – an Arabic version of the Italian film "Perfetti sconosciuti" that debuted on the streaming service last week – treads elegantly on the Arab culture of honor without pulling any punches. It has raised the ire of members of the Egyptian parliament and politicians around the Arab world, who are now calling for a boycott of Netflix. Get your popcorn ready: The real-life drama promises to exceed that presented in the movie.
