about alex jane levy

From writer/director Jesse Zwick, the indie dramedy About Alex follows a group of 20-something friends who reunite for a weekend aware after one of them suffers an emotional breakdown.  While these young people clearly care about each other, their differences, old jealousies and unrequited love will become more apparent.  The film stars Aubrey Plaza, Max Greenfield, Maggie Grace, Max Minghella, Nate Parker, Jason Ritter and Jane Levy.

During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Jane Levy talked about how she got involved with About Alex, what attracted her to this script, how her character is the outsider among this group of friends, her own complex and complicated relationship with technology, how much fun they all had living and working together, and that they got to do some improv.  She also talked about her experience on the live-action/CG hybrid film Monster Trucks, not knowing what she’s going to do next, for the first time in her career, and what she’ll remember most fondly about her time on the comedy series Suburgatory.  Check out what she had to say after the jump.
