If you’re a fan of teen romantic comedies like She is all that then you should definitely enjoy Dangerous Liaisons. While the story doesn’t center on a teenage outcast who blossoms into a candidate for prom queen, it still contains the same elements with a bit more sinister and steamy take.

Célène, at 17, is an idealist. She believes in absolute love and is more into reading than social media. She is preparing to live for a time separated from her fiancé, Pierre, leaving Paris for Biarritz. Soon, she must face off against the evil elite of her new school, led by former silver screen star, Instagram queen Vanessa, and famous surfer Tristan, who is both dangerous and seductive. Célène falls in love with him but is far from suspecting that she is at the center of a cruel bet between Tristan and Vanessa. How far will they go?
