Here's a trailer for a wonderful looking film called About Alex. The movie has a great young cast that includes Aubrey Plaza, Max Greenfield, Nate Parker, Max Minghella, Jason Ritter, Maggie Grace, and Jane Levy. The story revolves around seven old friends who are brought back together when one of them attempts suicide. It sounds kind of bleak, but as you'll see in the trailer there's a lot of humor and heart behind it. I like these kinds of inspirational movies about life and growing up. Here's a more detailed synopsis:
About Alex is the story of seven college friends who reunite over a three-day weekend, after one of them attempts suicide. When the friends get together to keep an eye on Alex, the weekend that ensues will renew old crushes and resentments, shine light on bad decisions, and ultimately push friendships and relationships to the brink as the group tries to speculate when the simple life of their college years turned so muddy and complex. Sometimes irreverent, sometimes poetic, and always moving, About Alex is a searingly honest look at the changing nature of adult friendship in the Facebook/Twitter generation.
About Alex is set to be released on August 8th. I know this may not be considered a "geeky" movie, but I'm a movie geek, and I enjoy watching all kinds of films. Enjoy the trailer!
