Netflix is set to release a new romantic comedy titled The Perfect Find, and we’ve got a first look at what to expect.
The movie stars Gabrielle Union as Jenna Jones, a 40-year-old fashion industry veteran who returns to New York after a high-profile firing and a public breakup.
Jenna knows she only has one chance to resurrect her career, and takes a job with Darcy (Gina Torres), a cutthroat mogul who has a reputation for being difficult to work with. However, things get complicated when Jenna finds herself falling for her much younger colleague Eric (Keith Powers), who also happens to be Darcy’s son.
As Jenna and Eric’s romance heats up, she must decide whether to risk everything on a secret relationship, and if their age difference will be too much to overcome.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Union spoke about how she wanted to do something she hadn’t done before with the film.
“It really sparked something inside of me about older women and how we can oftentimes disappear from society, almost, in terms of people looking at us as like we are past our prime,” Union said. “But baby, I’m thriving.”
In addition to Union, Powers, and Torres, the film stars Aisha Hinds, DB Woodside, Janet Hubert, and La La Anthony.
The film is based on the book by Tia Williams and directed by Numa Perrier, with a screenplay by Leigh Davenport.
Producers of the film include Glendon Palmer, Gabrielle Union, Jeff Morrone, Codie Elaine Oliver, and Tommy Oliver. Executive Producers include, Stuart Ford, Miguel A. Palos, Linda McDonough, Holly Shakoor Fleischer, Melissa Jones, Leigh Davenport and Matthew Myers.
The Perfect Find hits Netflix worldwide on June 23.
