Screen Media Films has released the trailer for their upcoming comedy drama About Alex, starring Aubrey Plaza, Max Greenfield, Nate Parker, Max Minghella, Jason Ritter, Maggie Grace and Jane Levy. Check it out in the player below.
Written and directed by Jesse Zwick, About Alex follows a circle of twenty-something friends who reunite for a weekend away after one of them suffers an emotional breakdown. Despite the groups best efforts to keep it light and enjoy themselves, a tinderbox of old jealousies, unrequited love, and widening political differences leads to an explosion that, coupled with the flammable combination of drugs, wine, and risotto, cannot be contained. An honest appraisal of adult friendship for our current social media moment, “About Alex” is a lighthearted look at the struggles of a generation that has it all and wants more.
About Alex opens in theaters on August 8, 2014.
