Looking for a fresh start, former fashion editor Jenna Jones (Gabrielle Union) takes on a new gig with her old archnemesis and current media mogul, Darcy Vale (Gina Torres). Even with little social media experience Jenna finds success at her new digital magazine, and when a younger videographer (Keith Powers) catches her eye, she thinks things are finally turning around — until she finds out, he’s the boss’s son.
Based on Tia Williams’ award-winning novel of the same name and directed by Numa Perrier, The Perfect Find boasts an exceptional cast that also includes names like Janet Hubert, D.B. Woodside, Aisha Hinds, La La Anthony and more. This film not only presents a relatable and entertaining exploration of the struggles and triumphs of a woman trying to reinvent herself but serves as a tribute to the history of Black cinema. Embodying the spirit of the 90s-era Black romcoms, The Perfect Find is indeed a find.––Jarod Neece
