Daniel Doheny in First Trailer for Teen Comedy Film 'Alex Strangelove'
"I'm over it Dell, this whole thing - sex, love - I'm out." Netflix has debuted a trailer for a teen comedy titled Alex Strangelove, the latest feature from director Craig Johnson (of The Skeleton Twins and Wilson previously). This quirky sexual awakening story is about a high school senior named Alex Truelove, played by newcomer Daniel Doheny (from Adventures in Public School), who has a "wonderful girlfriend" named Claire. Things get complicated when he meets Elliot, a "handsome and charming gay kid from the other side of town", and this "unwittingly sends Alex on a roller-coaster journey of sexual exploration, kicking off a hilarious and moving adventure of love, sex and friendship in our liberated and confusing modern times." The full cast includes Antonio Marziale, William Ragsdale, Joanna Adler, Isabella Amara, Ayden Mayeri, and Madeline Weinstein. This looks fresh and fun, all about the challenges of modern sexuality.
