Interview With Alexander Poe On Ex-Girlfriends

Filming a low-budget, independent film can be challenging for many directors. It’s even more difficult for a first time helmer with limited resources. But newcomer Alexander Poe, who wrote, directed, executive produced and starred in the upcoming New York-based comedy-drama Ex-Girlfriends, relied on his friends and colleagues to help create the realistic tale of trying to navigate romantic relationships. Also aided by Dexter star Jennifer Carpenter, who starred in and executive produced the film, Poe was able to explore his comedic side without the pressures of a larger budget film.

Ex-Girlfriends follows Graham (Poe), a writer who’s disheartened by his latest break-up, and his attempts to rekindle the spark with one of his ex-girlfriends, Laura (Kristen Connolly). While reconnecting with Laura and trying to win her back, Graham discovers that she’s dating Tom (Noah Bean), who’s also in a relationship with another one of his ex-girlfriends,

Alexander Poe & Jennifer Carpenter (Ex-Girlfriends) | Interview - Austin Film Festival 2012

Ex-Girlfriends is a deftly written film that feels much more literary than cinematic. That is not necessarily a bad thing, it just means that the cinematic devises play second fiddle to the writing and performances. Typically, when a film plays so blatantly with the perspective of the narrative, the result is something that is overtly writerly. Somehow, writer-director Alexander Poe is able to pull off this trick while maintaining a high level of naturalism. Sure, we are made aware that the story is being told by the Graham; he is a writer and this is his autobiographical tale. To add another level of meta-ness, Poe plays Graham. The story is told from Graham’s perspective and therefore inherently biased. The only difference between Poe, the author of the film, and Poe’s character is that the writer-director understands that he is creating a work of fiction while Graham is too

Ex-Girlfriends | Review - Austin Film Festival 2012

Graham (Alexander Poe) finds himself aimless and depressed after yet another failed relationship. One night, he runs into one of his ex-girlfriends -- Laura (Kristen Connolly) -- at a party. Despite the fact that Laura and Graham share a few mutual friends, Graham assumes that Laura's appearance at the party is destiny. He immediately falls head-over-heels in love with Laura, but remains confused about whether or not she is romantically interested in him. No matter what happens, the on screen events become prime fodder for his latest literary work. All the while, Graham's best friend Kate (Jennifer Carpenter) -- who also happens to be another of his ex-girlfriends -- confides in him about a boyfriend who is apparently cheating on her. The twist is that Graham is in love with the other woman.

Watch: Jennifer Carpenter in Exclusive Trailer for NYC Romance, 'Ex-Girlfriends' (Video)
The trailer for newcomer Alexander Poe's "Ex-Girlfriends," which premieres this month at the Austin Film Festival, opens with a second-person greeting reminiscent of Jay McInerney's famed first sentence from his '80s novel of 20-something New York, "Bright Lights, Big City." Like that book, "Ex-Girlfriends" plumbs the often-comic fallout of young urban romance in various states of disintegration. Having bumped into his former-girlfriend Laura (Kristen Connolly) at a party, Graham (Poe) struggles to win her back even as he discovers her involvement with the same man his friend Kate (Jennifer Carpenter) -- another ex -- is pursuing. The film's trailer yields a melange of sweaters, irony and twee acoustic rock that will be familiar to fans of indie comedy, as well as the mix of knowing barbs and hard-won empathy that has lately made the genre fertile territory.   "Ex-Girlfriends" comes out in New York and...

The Microbudget Conversation: “Ex-girlfriends”

Earlier this month I had the opportunity to take a master class with Ted Hope and Christina Vachon. Now out of respect to them I will not reveal all that was discussed, but what I can tell you is that my perspective of things has been altered quite a bit. I first started this blog with the intention of showcasing microbudget work as the passionate filmmaking it is…and fuck the rules. (The whole series of manifestos is evidence of that.) We were making cinema fast and cheap, and we needed to completely re-write the rules; a message that can be exhilarating if not short-sided. Don’t get me wrong, the old way of making films will soon be gone forever, but there are just some tent poles that can’t be taken down. I don’t think the goal of this column has changed, but the amount I have
