About Alex

One of our 20 Most Anticipated Films Of The Tribeca Film Festival, which kicks off today, "About Alex" already has us impressed by the cast director Jesse Zwick (son of Ed Zwick) has pulled together for his debut. Aubrey Plaza, Max Greenfield ("New Girl"), Maggie Grace, Nate Parker, Max Minghella, Jane Levy and Jason Ritter all feature in the ensemble dramedy, making it one to keep an eye on.

Penned by Zwick as well, the "Big Chill"-esque tale follows seven college friends who reunite for a weekend of fun and togetherness after one of them suffers a breakdown, only to discover that as much as they've drifted apart in the intervening time, old jealousies, flirtations and political differences still flare up. And as you'll see in this exclusive clip, just taking a picture starts a war of words.

"About Alex" premieres on April 17th at BMC Tribeca PAC. Watch below.
