ALEX OF VENICE
2014, Screen Media Films, 86 min, USA, Dir: Chris Messina

Actor Chris Messina makes his directorial debut with this character-driven drama about personal reinvention. Environmental attorney Alex Vedder (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) has thrown herself into her work at the expense of her marriage; when her husband (Messina) leaves, Alex must juggle the demands of her aging father, introverted son and eccentric sister all by herself. Though this couldn’t have happened at a worse time - just as she’s been given the biggest case of her career - it may be the wake-up call that Alex needs to hold her family together. With Don Johnson.
