The cast also includes Madeline Weinstein (Beach Rats) as Alex's sexually frustrated girlfriend, Claire, and Antonio Marziale (Netflix's Altered Carbon) as Alex's new gay friend-turned-crush.

The Netflix original film is written and directed by Craig Johnson (The Skeleton Twins, Wilson) and produced by comedian Ben Stiller, alongside Nicky Weinstock and Jared Ian Goldman (Ingrid Goes West).

ALEX STRANGELOVE tells the story of Alex Truelove (Daniel Doheny), a well-rounded high school senior with a wonderful girlfriend Claire (Madeline Weinstein) and a bright future ahead of him -- and with plans to achieve his last teenage milestone by losing his virginity. But things get complicated when he meets Elliot (Antonio Marziale), a handsome and charming gay kid from the other side of town, who unwittingly sends Alex on a rollercoaster journey of sexual identity, kicking off a hilarious and moving exploration of love, sex and friendship in our liberated and confusing modern times.
