Verdict on The Perfect Find
The Perfect Find is a romantic comedy following a former fashion designer who is trying to rebuild her career. However, her life takes a turn when she gets involved with her new boss’s son. Even if it sees things going well, it is more how long can they keep it a secret.
This gets to play into how life can turn around suddenly, and rebuilding can take you in strange directions. It shows what can be seen as a forbidden love due to an age difference and spins it around with the older woman and younger man. While it gets to tackle the typical difficult relationship subjects, it does seem to end up using the luxury lives, rather than characters with daily struggles. The performances are good and you can get a nice enjoyable rom-com experience in the movie.
Where to Watch: The Perfect Find is available now on Netflix.
