It seems like every other week there's another low budget indie drama on VOD about a group of old friends reuniting. Often times it's due to a tragedy, thus triggering intense bonding, philosophical conversations, vicious fighting, and swapping of sex partners. Every one of them wants to be the next 'Big Chill'. Few of them compare. But 'About Alex' is one of the few exceptions that really stands out in this genre, largely due to the quality and chemistry of the cast. Max Greenfield shines the brightest, but Aubrey Plaza, Jason Ritter, Maggie Grace, Jane Levy, Max Minghella, and Nate Parker all gel and make this a VOD premiere well worth your time if you like the genre.
'About Alex' is now available on Video on Demand.
Who is this movie for? It's the next 'Big Chill' for fans of talky indie dramas.
