Sundance 2010: WELCOME TO THE RILEYS with James Gandolfini & Kristen Stewart - Photos


Music Video direct Jake Scott is the man behind the film Welcome To The Rileys which is included in the US Dramatic Competition at the Sundance Film Festival 2010. He has directed some classic music videos for REM’s Everybody Hurts, Radiohead’s Fake Plastic Trees, The Cranberries’ When You’re Gone, as well as videos for Soundgarden, The Smashing Pumpkins, Live, Blind Melon, The Strokes, The Verve, U2 and more. Oh yeah! He is also the son of famed filmmaker Ridley Scott! So he had a great freakin teacher.

The film was written by Ken Hixon who wrote City by the Sea and Inventing the Abbotts.

The story follows a damaged man on a business trip to New Orleans who is seeking salvation by caring for a wayward young woman, after the death of his child and problems with his wife. The movie stars James Gandolfini, Kristen Stewart, and Melissa Leo.

There is a lot to love about this movie because of who is involved, and it also gives Kristin Stewart (Twilight) the opportunity to give her best performance. I guess we'll see how it turns out, but I'm looking forward to seeing this one.

Here are a few images from the film:
