Zac Efron and Nicole Kidman star in new exciting movie on Netflix

Imagine if your single mother dated the hottest star in America! This is the premise of The Idea of You, but also of A Family Affair, a new rom-com coming to Netflix. And before you even start, let’s be so real and admit that it’s okay to have a formulaic setup—both of these movies are essentially age-gap versions of Notting Hill anyway.

So! A Family Affair stars Zac Efron as self-absorbed movie star Chris Cole, Joey King as his assistant Zara Ford, and Nicole Kidman as King’s mom Brooke Harwood, who starts an unexpected romance with Cole. And it looks genuinely funny. Joey King, I was unfamiliar with your comedy game, but I see it and I respect it. Kathy Bates and Liza Koshy costar as Zara’s grandma Leila Ford and Zara’s bestie Eugenie, respectively. Check out the trailer here:

“You’re not Jack and Rose, just get out of the car!” is so good…

“A Family Affair official poster. All I can say is…it’s the love story you never knew you needed 💋,” King wrote on Instagram to promote the project. Actually, I know I need this, Joey! If it makes fun of celebrities, validates an older woman’s sexuality, and has Kathy Bates? I know I need that.

We’re not sure how steamy this movie gets (it’s rated PG-13 for “sexual content, partial nudity and some strong language”), but it might interest you to recall that Nicole Kidman and Zac Efron have in fact already filmed intimate scenes together. They costarred in 2012’s The Paperboy, which isn’t super explicit, but their characters do hook up. (Be warned: This movie is weird af. But Macy Gray’s in it, so that’s cool.)
