    About Alex

    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.

    August 10, 2014

    Neither the script's up-to-the-minute signifiers nor its cheekily self-aware humor can entirely dispel a formulaic feel.

    New York Observer
    August 08, 2014

    The intelligence and unhackneyed humor of the believable, unself-conscious screenplay by fledgling director Mr. Zwick (son of veteran director Edward Zwick) deserves special praise. It never hits a false note.
    August 08, 2014

    I was pleasantly surprised by much of "About Alex," a film that features a stronger-than-average ensemble for this subgenre even if it too often succumbs to predictable, traditional turns of Screenwriting 101.

    Globe and Mail

    The chronicle of a less self-absorbed generation, it's less annoying than The Big Chill but also less funny.

    Seattle Times
    August 07, 2014

    Only Plaza's performance as the troubled Sarah comes close to creating a three-dimensional character.

    New York Times
    August 07, 2014

    The insight that social media fosters false intimacy is old news. The film shows only a half-formed sense of how careers have changed in 30 years.

    August 17, 2016

    Most of the characters are superficial and underdeveloped, while the film itself is filled with predictable scenarios. Strong performances by the cast elevate the material, but it's simply not enough.

    The Film Stage

    Perhaps we can view this in 30 years as a lightweight text mirroring some of Occupy Wall Street, and perhaps the rise of Elizabeth Warren, although I'm quite sure it will be forgotten about well before then.

    Nice to meet you, Truthteller. Meet your fellow stereotypes...
    September 15, 2014

    A riff on the 1983 classic The Big Chill, this ensemble drama's reunion of old friends differs because Alex's suicide fails this time.

    Paste Magazine
    August 14, 2014

    Ultimately, the portrayals in About Alex are all caricatures that don't really ring true.
    August 08, 2014

    The whole movie feels like sitting through a monologue read by over-privileged millennials reading pages from their pubescent diary, sharing shallow revelations about crushes and car envy.
