About the Movie
From director Joe Swanberg (HANNAH TAKES THE STAIRS) and producer Noah Baumbach. In Swanberg's own words: "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 hope it is clear from the work that I believe the commitment is worth the struggle."

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Alexander the Last, a 72-minute series of loosely connected scenes, follows an actress's lurching conversations and tentative gestures in life and the theater.
Fresh: What looks like a drama of adultery turns out to be an exploration of how the spaces between people can separate them or join them, often at the same moment.
Rotten: At a slight 72 minutes, the DIY director's latest bout of psychosexual titillation (which is being made available on-demand in conjunction with its SXSW fest premiere) feels undercooked.
Fresh: Part of that restless, productive team of mumblecore savants, Swanberg allows his actors to do what they do best: act.
