Forget celebrity bad boys like Eliot Spitzer, Tiki Barber, Jesse James and Tiger Woods. Fidelity in everyday relationships seems to be a hot topic in films these days, from Date Night to micro-indies like Breaking Upwards and The Freebie. Add Dana Adam Shapiro's feature directing debut Monogamy to the list. The low-budget indie-financed film debuts April 24 at the Tribeca Film Festival (Submarine is selling). Check the exclusive clip below.

The feature debut of journalist/novelist/documentarian Dana Adam Shapiro (Murderball), Monogamy was co-written by Shapiro and Evan M. Wiener and filmed on the Red camera in 22 days around Brooklyn and Manhattan. Thanks to producer Tom Heller (Precious) and casting director Billy Hopkins, Shapiro was able to land Chris Messina (Julie & Julia) and Rashida Jones (I Love You Man) to play an engaged couple who are forced to re-examine their relationship after the wedding photographer takes on a side gig to shoot from afar a mysterious blonde (Weeds' Meital Dohan) as she poses--increasingly provocatively--in various public Manhattan locations.

The photographer's reaction to the woman throws his future marriage into new relief, says Shapiro: "He's struggling with, 'Am I going to be able to be a good husband over a lifetime with this person?'"

    This looks like it could be really good. Messina and Rashida are talented.

    I've been curious about what Shapiro was going to follow up Murderball with. That film was one of the best movies in the last 10 years. period.

    What a trio of performers ! Hopefully I can make a screening, I've just devoured the second season of weeds and can't wait to see Meital Dohan in this, not to mention to see how Shapiro pulls of his first fiction feature.
