The Incredible Jessica James (Trailer Netflix)
Netflix has droped a teaser for its upcoming original comedy film The Incredible Jessica James, starring Jessica Williams.
Written and directed by James C. Strouse, the movie follows Jessica, a struggling playwright living in New York City, who forms, while on the rebound from a break-up, an unlikely friendship with a divorced app designer she meets on a blind date.
The clip features Jessica Williams in various scenes, on a blind date, dancing in the flat she’s living, trying to convince a guy in the subway, through a persistent yet discreet look, to stop staying with his legs spread so that she could sit, too, until she makes him a hand sign given that he didn’t understand her. In one of them, hired as a waitress to an event, she tells a lady she’s “pretty”, “smart” and “Coco Queen”.
The cast ensemble includes also Chris O’Dowd, Noël Wells, Lakeith Stanfield, Megan Ketch, Susan Heyward, Will Stephen, and others.
The film, which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, was acquired by the streaming service a few days ahead of its premiere, and is set to be released on July 28.
