Alex Beh's WARREN Now Available on Vimeo On Demand
Watson Pictures and Full Circle Films announced today the release of Alex Beh's film WARREN exclusively on Vimeo On Demand (vimeo.com/ondemand/Warren) and then will be available for rental and purchase on iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play afterwards. The exclusive trailer has been publicly released today as well on the film's website and on VIMEO, giving viewers a first look at the feature film.
The film stars Alex Beh, Sarah Habel (Underemployed, Whip It, Rush), John Heard (Home Alone, Big, Sharknado), Jean Smart (Designing Women), Andrew Santino (Mixology), Joseph A. Nunez (Superbad), Austin Stowell (Whiplash), Greg Hollimon (Strangers with Candy), and Bruce Jarchow and is produced by Mark Hannah, Dallas Sonnier, Jack Heller (Bone Tomahawk, Enter Nowhere) and Orian Williams (Control, Shadow of the Vampire, Big Sur).
The film follows its ambling title character (played by Alex Beh), a late-20something comedian who moonlights as a barista. He's caught in the polar vortex between his divorcing parents (played by the talented John Heard and Jean Smart) and wrapped around his own fear of pursuing comedy. When fate reconnects him with a former love (Sarah Habel) while working at a coffee shop in his hometown, the serendipity of the occurrence could alter his planned life track. He must then decide between winning her back or attempting to pursue his career of comedy again.
'This film, which recalls 'The Graduate,' is beautifully shot around Chicago... sorely wishing Roger Ebert could've seen and written about it.'

'I'm very excited to be releasing the movie exclusively on Vimeo On Demand, a company that respects filmmakers and curates great content,' said Alex Beh. 'It's cool to be on the cutting edge of a new platform.'
Director Alex Beh took his experience of improv, having studied in Chicago at The Second City, and combined it with the premise of 'what if the girl you thought you were going to marry came back into your life?' Definitely a coming-into-one's own story, WARREN explores the dynamics of the parent/child relationship, the idea of growing old alone, and the fear of not reaching your dreams.
Beh is represented by Kevin Hussey and Bryan Diperstein at ICM Partners and Sean Elliott and Joshua Pasch at Authentic Management and Matthew Wallerstein at Hirsch Wallerstein Hayum Matlof & Fishman.
