Screen Media Films has debuted this first trailer for Jesse Zwick’s dramedy ‘About Alex,’ which stars Aubrey Plaza, Jane Levy, Max Greenfield, Nate Parker, Max Minghella, Jason Ritter and Maggie Grace. Set to hit cinemas and iTunes on August 8th, the film’s official synopsis is as follows.
In ABOUT ALEX, a circle of twenty-something friends reunite for a weekend away after one of them suffers an emotional breakdown. Despite the group’s best efforts to keep it light and enjoy themselves, a tinderbox of old jealousies, unrequited love, and widening political differences leads to an explosion that, coupled with the flammable combination of drugs, wine, and risotto, cannot be contained. An honest appraisal of adult friendship for our current social media moment, ABOUT ALEX is a lighthearted look at the struggles of a generation that has it all – and wants more.
Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions have unveiled this teaser trailer for Justin Simien’s ‘Dear White People,’ which premiered at earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival to stellar reviews and a special jury award for breakthrough talent.
