About Alex movie scene

The Little Chill? A gaggle of college friends reunite for a weekend in About Alex.

Aubrey Plaza (Life After Beth) and Max Minghella (The Social Network) lead a group of young talents in the comedy-drama About Alex, a kind of Big Chill for the millennial generation.

After the stress of adulthood takes its toll on a young man—a failed actor who attempts to suicide—a group of old college friends reunite for a weekend of reflection, partying and shared laughs. Together for the first time in years, old crushes and rivalries are rekindled and a combination of wine, weed and an unexpected dog sends the careening off into equally unexpected directions.

Written and directed by Jesse Zwick, the R-rated film also stars in the film are Max Greenfield, Jason Ritter, Jane Levy, Nate Parker and Maggie Grace (Lockout).

About Alex received a limited release to theaters in August, 2014, along with an online release. It garnered a meh rating from the critics at Rotten Tomatoes, earning a 5.7/10 based on 36 published reviews.
