Alex of Venice, Mary Elizabeth Winstead
When actresses and audiences alike lament the lack of interesting roles for—and movies about—women as central characters, “Alex of Venice” should be held up as a shining example of what could be. The independent feature, which premiered this week at the Tribeca Film Festival, stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead (“Smashed,” “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World”) as the title character, whose tenuous grasp on her multitasking life is rocked when her husband (Chris Messina, who also directed) announces he is leaving.

Alex of Venice, Mary Elizabeth Winstead
In the tranquil suburbs of Venice, Alex, an environmental rights attorney, is about to receive one major rude awakening.

But the rug suddenly gets pulled out from under Alex when her husband unexpectedly decides to pack it all in and announce that he’s leaving the family, at least for now, to work on his waning art career and find some space.
