‘The Perfect Couple’ story and cast
The Perfect Couple is a murder mystery that follows Amelia Sacks (Eve Hewson), a bride about to marry into one of Nantucket’s wealthiest families. The groom’s mother, a famous novelist, Greer Garrison Winbury (Nicole Kidman), has spared no expense on the high-society wedding.
However, when a dead body appears on the beach, everyone’s Champagne dreams quickly vanish and are replaced by suspicion. As secrets bubble up to the surface, an investigation takes hold that feels plucked from one of Greer’s books.
