Still image from the film Alexander the Last
A sensual and intimate portrait of a young marriage that illuminates the challenges of monogamy amidst myriad sexual and creative temptations.  Starring Jess Weixler, Justin Rice, Barlow Jacobs, Josh Hamilton, Jane Adams and Amy Seimetz.

Director Joe Swanberg states that "The film's main theme of commitment, as that relates to marriage and art, is very personal to me. I am married and I am an artist, and it is a constant struggle to be true to both commitments, especially when they sometimes seem at odds with each other. I wanted to explore the challenge of fidelity when one is constantly surrounded by exciting, attractive people with the same passions and objectives. I hope it is clear from the work that I believe the commitment is worth the struggle."

Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly stated “(Joe) Swanberg’s style is a conduit to something that transcends youth”. (HD Cam presentation)

Director Joe Swanberg and actor Amy Seimetz are scheduled to be present.
