Here's the first trailer for a coming-of-age drama called Palo Alto, which stars James Franco and Emma Roberts. The movie was written and directed by Francis Ford Coppola's granddaughter Gia Coppola, and this is her first film. All I can say is it must be nice to be a Coppola. Not only does Franco star in the film, but it's actually based on a collection of short stories that he wrote. The movie looks decent, and here's a short synopsis.
Welcome to the Bizarro John Hughes world; this is a suburban-teen comedy gone all wrong. The kids know everything about sex, substances and suicide, but can’t begin to figure out how or what they feel. Emma Roberts leads an unforgettable cast that includes Franco, 17-year-old Jack Kilmer (his father Val plays a supporting role) and Colleen Camp.
The movie also stars Nat Wolff, Jack Kilmer, and Val Kilmer. As of right now there is no U.S. distributor, but it has screened at the Telluride film festival.
