Netflix snagged The Incredible Jessica James prior to its debut at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival where it earned high praise from critics, and today they’ve unveiled a new teaser trailer in support of the film’s July 28, 2017 release. The Incredible Jessica James is currently sitting at 95% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes with only a single critic giving it a negative review. TheWrap‘s Claudia Puig (not the negative critic) describes it as “a comedy centered around a multi-dimensional African-American woman who is smart, funny, vulnerable, sensual, charming, flawed, resilient, well-educated, an inspiring teacher and a loving friend feels almost like the cinematic equivalent of a unicorn.”
The Plot: Jessica Williams (The Daily Show) stars as a young, aspiring playwright in New York City who is struggling to get over a recent breakup. She is forced to go on a date with the recently divorced Boone, played by Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids) and the unlikely duo discover how to make it through the tough times in a social media obsessed post-relationship universe.
