Straining credulity

Netflix's adaptation of Tia Williams's The Perfect Find comes out tomorrow, and it looks fun. The cast is great, the clothes look amazing, and I'll watch Gina Torres in anything. It's always hard for me to buy into the angst of any kind of age-difference story when the older partner looks like Gabrielle Union, however. (Or Anne Hathaway in the upcoming The Idea of You, for that matter.) If you cast a preternaturally good-looking actor over 40 who could easily pass for ten to fifteen years younger, it's a little tough to get super invested in their alleged mid-life crisis.
