A Perfect Fit looks at the damage that can be done to a relationship if we can't get beyond the scars carried over from our childhoods. Sarah (Leila Arcieri) is so eager to find a man that she overlooks the warning signals in John's (Adrian Grenier) behavior. The film makes it clear from the opening scenes that John is a disaster waiting to happen, but Sarah chooses to ignore some of the warning signals, and plunges headlong into a relationship with him. As an audience, we know more about John's troubles than Sarah does, which creates a lot of tension. Many of us have made similar mistakes in our own lives, and it is easy to relate to Sarah's predicament. When the film shows us the reasons for John's troubles, he becomes a sympathetic character. Even though we know it's probably futile, we hope that John will find a way to tame his demons, and that the relationship will work out in the end.

Adrian Grenier and Leila Arcieri give wonderful performances in demanding roles. They have an amazing chemistry that is at times exciting, and at other times, disturbing to watch. Watching Grenier try to manipulate and control Sarah causes discomfort, but we can't help but feel some empathy for him as he struggles to hold onto the thing that he has missed out on his whole life – love. Writer/director Ron Brown has created an intimate film with believable and concise dialogue. It definitely rings true, and that's what makes it unique.
