  • Summary: After one of them suffers an emotional breakdown, a group of twenty-something friends reunite for a weekend away. 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.

    There's nothing new under the sun, but About Alex is very, very not new. Luckily, most of its capable cast muster the warmth we require, and Zwick's script offers more humor (however mild the laughs are) than sentimentality.

    About Alex is about too much and too little, a sandbox for its considerable cast, but ultimately just following the reunion rulebook.
