The Secret Diary of an Exchange StudentMovie on Netflix

Two best friends go on an exchange student adventure, but can they stay out of trouble?


Why watch this film?

Larissa Manoela, Thati Lopes, and Bruno Montaleone are well known in the Brazilian media and here they kickstart their international career by embarking on 'Diários de Intercâmbio', a national comedy with Netflix's seal. This movie was clearly made for the global market, with a theme that the United States is the epicenter of the world in contrast to the criticism that Latin America receives from North Americans. It's a movie for the young audience, which brings good points about life abroad and also about maturity. However, a demerit of the story is the protagonist's involvement with an old man. Even if it makes some sense in the narrative, it could have been inserted without the romantic interest - maybe it wouldn't have the same impact, but still, it's a bit problematic. Apart from that, the story has a great twist, which manages to be quite shocking.
