High school reunions are typically touted as the peak of awkward gatherings, but how does a “sorry you attempted suicide” reunion sound? That’s the situation in “About Alex,” a new movie starring Aubrey Plaza, Max Greenfield, Jane Levy and Maggie Grace, in which college friends who have drifted apart over time come together for a cabin retreat to awkwardly supervise and console their friend Alex (Jason Ritter) following his suicide attempt.
Expect awkward hookups, dark humor, some real-deal-feels and, of course, jokes about New Jersey. Because, like, why not?
Check out the just-released trailer above. “About Alex” hits theaters August 8.
