Sophie Turner will be appearing in Netflix’s new movie Do Revenge. It is a dark comedy that shows two unusual people banding together for retribution. According to the official description, “a deposed queen bee at a luxury private high school establishes a secret agreement with an unassuming new student to inflict revenge on each other’s foes.”
In the movie, popular student Drea (Camila Mendes) wants to exact revenge on her boyfriend for disclosing her sex tape, and transfer student Eleanor (Maya Hawke), who is outed by a girl based on a rumor, forms a close friendship. The two vow to assist one another by taking revenge on each other’s bullies after an unexpected encounter.
In the film, which also stars Camila Mendes and Maya Hawke, Sophie Turner plays a bully in high school. Turner, who is best known for playing Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones, is depicted in a new avatar and admits in a recent Instagram post that she had the “greatest fun” filming it.
The movie, according to its director and writer Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, is a “backward-engineered” tale of retribution. What would it be like to put the exciting, suspenseful stakes of a Hitchcock film in a high school setting?
“I believe there are various moments in this story where everyone is the antagonist and everyone is the hero. And in many ways, it is what growing up entails. I wanted to create something that captures the full palette of adolescence,” she continued.
