Netflix's 'The Perfect Date': Release date, cast, plot, trailer and all you need to know about the Noah Centineo starrer
This time, Centineo is the protagonist who wants to date the hottest girl in school, drive the fanciest car, and go to Yale, while overcoming teenage drama
One of Netflix's favorite poster boys, Noah Centineo, is back again with yet another coming-of-age movie on the not so fine experiences of being a teenager. This time, he isn't the knight in shining armor or a clumsy, goofy protagonist. This time, he is the protagonist who wants to date the hottest girl in school, drive the fanciest car, and go to Yale, while overcoming the regular teenage drama, in the upcoming Netflix original movie, titled 'The Perfect Date.'
The film features Centineo as Brooks Rattigan, who has the academic credits to get into his dream Ivy League school, but what he also needs, and is clearly missing in his resume, is an outstanding extracurricular activity, and the money. When he seizes on an opportunity to make some extra cash by posing as the boyfriend of a self-assured, combat boot-loving girl named Celia Lieberman, he realizes he has a knack for being the perfect stand-in.
Together, with his best friend Murph, who is also a programmer, Brooks launches an app selling himself as a plus-one for all occasions. Along the way, he meets the girl of his dreams, Shelby. But when business starts to boom, Brooks must reassess everything he was once sure of.
Directed by Chris Nelson, the film features Centineo as Brooks, Laura Marano playing the role of Celia, Camila Mendes as Brooks' dream girl, Shelby, and Odiseas Georgiadis as Brooks' close friend, Murph.
Netflix dropped the first trailer for the upcoming film March 26, and fans didn't waste time noticing how this was yet another film where Noah Centineo was onboard to play a fake/stand in boyfriend. Not long ago, he starred in the very popular Netflix original film To All The Boy's I've Loved Before where he posed as lead character Lana Condor's fake boyfriend.
But that isn't the only film featuring Centineo, that shares similarities with his upcoming project. In his other Netflix romcom 'Sierra Burgess is A Loser', the lead character Sierra (Shannon Purser) was all set to go to her dream Ivy league college, but was falling short of the mark as she lacked strong extracurricular activities in her resume - just like Centineo's character Brooks finds himself in the upcoming 'The Perfect Date.'
'The Perfect Date' arrives April 12, only on Netflix.
