Writer director Jesse Zwick’s first feature film “About Alex” premiered at Tribeca Film Festival. It’s reminiscent of 1983’s “The Big Chill,” but for the Facebook and Twitter generation. After Alex (Jason Ritter) attempts suicide, his college friends reunite for a long weekend. Ritter (“Parenthood”) is the son of the late actor John Ritter, who was best known for his starring role in the sitcom “Three’s Company.”
Zwick cast his film with an ensemble of successful sitcom actors including Maggie Grace (“Susanna” and “Californication”), Max Greenfield (“New Girl”), Max Minghella (“The Mindy Project”), Jane Levy (“Suburgatory”), Aubrey Plaza (“Parks and Recreation”) and Nate Parker.
