Screen Media Films, who recently picked up the distribution rights for Mary’s new film Faults, has also acquired worldwide rights to Mary’s other film Alex of Venice. Winstead stars alongside Don Johnson, Derek Luke and Katie Nehra.
“Alex of Venice” is a drama that follows a workaholic environmental attorney named Alex Vedder (Winstead) who’s forced to reinvent herself after her husband (Messina) suddenly leaves the family. Dealing with an aging father (Johnson) who still aspires to succeed as an actor, an eccentric sister (Nehra) and an extremely shy son (Sklar Gaertner), Alex is bombarded with everything from the mundane to hilariously catastrophic events without a shoulder to lean on. Realizing she will thrive with or without her husband, Alex discovers her hidden vulnerability as well as her inner strength as she fights to keep her family intact in the midst of the most demanding and important case of her career.
The indie movie previously played at the Tribeca, Seattle, and San Francisco Film Festivals, and is scheduled to continue on the festival circuit with stops at the Deauville, Napa Valley and Hollywood Film Festivals, before hitting theaters and VOD day-and-date in the first half of 2015.
