FEATURE NARRATIVE 96 Minutes World Premiere
FILM GUIDE ABOUT ALEX
Seven college friends, once close, find that they've drifted apart in their post-college years. But after hearing news that one of their cadre has suffered an emotional breakdown, the group reunite for a weekend away to cheer him up and relive the fun and simplicity of their college glory days. Yet, despite their best efforts to enjoy themselves, a tinderbox of old jealousies, unrequited love, and widening political differences leads to an explosion of drama that, coupled with the flammable combination of drugs, wine, and risotto, cannot be contained.

A Big Chill for our current social media moment, About Alex is a thoughtful, emotionally raw, and honest look at the changing nature of adult friendships, brought to life by a strong ensemble cast including Aubrey Plaza, Max Greenfield, Max Minghella, Jason Ritter, Nate Parker, Jane Levy, and Maggie Grace.
