Stepping out to support a pal, Mindy Kaling attended the premiere of "Alex of Venice" on Friday evening (April 18) in New York City.

Cute in an all-black ensemble, the "Mindy Project" star posed on the red carpet prior to heading inside for the film, which was part of the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival.

The film marks the directorial debut for Mindy's co-star Chris Messina.

Per the synopsis: "Workaholic attorney, Alex is forced to reinvent her life after her husband suddenly leaves. Now faced with the humdrum and sometimes catastrophic events that permeate the fabric of our lives, Alex discovers both a vulnerability and inner strength she had not yet tapped all while trying to hold together her broken family."
