In ABOUT ALEX, a circle of twenty-something friends reunite for a weekend away after one of them suffers an emotional breakdown. 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. An honest appraisal of adult friendship for our current social media moment, ABOUT ALEX is a lighthearted look at the struggles of a generation that has it all – and wants more.

Most of the characters are superficial and underdeveloped, while the film itself is filled with predictable scenarios. Strong performances by the cast elevate the material, but it's simply not enough.

The insight that social media fosters false intimacy is old news. The film shows only a half-formed sense of how careers have changed in 30 years.

Perhaps we can view this in 30 years as a lightweight text mirroring some of Occupy Wall Street, and perhaps the rise of Elizabeth Warren, although I'm quite sure it will be forgotten about well before then.

The whole movie feels like sitting through a monologue read by over-privileged millennials reading pages from their pubescent diary, sharing shallow revelations about crushes and car envy.

Ultimately, the portrayals in About Alex are all caricatures that don't really ring true.

Only Plaza's performance as the troubled Sarah comes close to creating a three-dimensional character.

Neither the script's up-to-the-minute signifiers nor its cheekily self-aware humor can entirely dispel a formulaic feel.

The chronicle of a less self-absorbed generation, it's less annoying than The Big Chill but also less funny.
