Call it “The Big Chill” for the new millennium.
“About Alex,” from new director Jesse Zwick, premiered at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival and follows a group of friends who get together for a bonding weekend after on of their bunch (Jason Ritter) attempts suicide. A combination of old jealousies, new love interests, and copious amounts of booze amps up the tension in each adult friendship. The rest of the trendy cast includes Aubrey Plaza, Max Greenfield, Jason Ritter, Maggie Grace, and Jane Levy.
“About Alex” hits theaters August 8. Check out the trailer below.
