Pack your passport and prepare for a trip to the outback with Netflix’s new film A Perfect Pairing. Starring Victoria Justice (Lola) and Adam Demos (Max), the film follows a young entrepreneur on her journey to Australia to snag her new wine company’s first client. However, it proves a bit difficult to win them over, and as she tries, sparks might also fly between the station manager training her to work on the family’s sheep farm.
The film was written by Elizabeth Hackett and Hilary Galanoy. Galanoy has written several other romantic comedies for Netflix, including Falling Inn Love and Love, Guaranteed. Hackett wrote those films alongside Galanoy, meaning A Perfect Pairing is the third romantic comedy they’ve written together for Netflix. The two also wrote the Hallmark films Swept Up by Christmas and My Best Friend’s Bouquet together. Stuart McDonald directs the film. His recent work includes directing episodes of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and the upcoming Netflix project Choose Love.
This movie is set to hit Netflix soon, so sit back with your glass as we tell you everything you need to know about A Perfect Pairing (though we do not have a wine pairing list for each scene yet).
Plot: Everything We Know
A Perfect Pairing follows Lola, a Los Angeles-based executive who quit her job with a wine company to follow her dream of starting her own wine company. To try and start her client list, she flies to Australia to meet with Vaughn Family Wines, but they aren’t interested in working with her or her new company. To show them she’s a hard worker, and worth it for them to choose and work with her company, she begins as a farmhand on their sheep farm, which is harder than it looks.
The work does not gel with Lola, who is used to working as an office executive, and a station manager named Max trains her on different tasks. In training her, the two become friends, and romantic sparks seem to fly. However, it looks like Max is hiding some things from Lola, making it difficult for her to lean into her feelings when she does not know his secrets. Hopefully, viewers will see Lola start her wine company with Vaughn Family Wines as a client and a happy ending for her and Max.
A trailer has not been released yet, but one should be soon with the release date on the horizon.
Cast: Everything We Know
Victoria Justice and Adam Demos star as Lola and Max, respectively. Funnily enough, this is not the first time Justice has played a character named Lola. Justice is known by audiences for performances during her youth, like Zoey 101 (where she played Lola Martinez) and Victorious. However, more recently, Justice has been in Afterlife of the Party (also a Netflix movie) and Quibi’s 50 States of Fright. Demos is best known for his other Netflix projects Falling Inn Love and Sex / Life.
In addition to Justice and Demos, there are several other confirmed cast members, though not all of their roles are confirmed. According to the film’s IMDb page, Nicholas Brown is playing a character named Hamish. Brown is known for his roles in The Unlisted and Amazing Grace. Other cast members include Korey Williams (Kong: Skull Island), Luca Sardelis (Nowhere Boys), Craig Horner (Once Upon a Time, H2O: Just Add Water), Lucy Durack (Neighbors), Natalie Abbott (Aftertaste), Jayden Popik (Woke), Antonio Alvarez, Samantha Cain, and Emily Haven.
The film will be available to stream on Netflix starting May 19, 2022.
Everything Else We Know
There are quite a few connections between the cast and crew of A Perfect Pairing and their other projects. It’s already been mentioned that writers Hilary Galanoy and Elizabeth Hackett have worked together on four other films, but they’ve also worked with Adam Demos before. They both wrote Falling Inn Loveand Demos starred in the film as Jake.
A Perfect Pairing’s director is working with one of Justice’s former castmates in his next project. Victoria Justice is well-known for her work on the Nickelodeon show Victorious, where she starred as Tori Vega. Avan Jogia, who played Beck in the series, is now known for his work in Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City and Zombieland 2: Double Tap. He is also one of the male leads of Stuart McDonald’s upcoming project Choose Love. This means the director will have worked with two Victorious cast members on romantic comedies for Netflix. Choose Love is an interactive film that was announced this past March.
A Perfect Pairing is coming to your screen soon. Until then, you can start planning what you’ll drink while you watch. It should come as no surprise we recommend something made from grapes, maybe paired with a nice cheese.
