Weekend Viewing: First Trailer For Gia Coppola’s Palo Alto, Starring James Franco

Based on a book of short stories by James Franco and directed by Gia Coppola Palo Alto stars Emma Roberts as a teenager who a football coach, played by none other than James Franco himself, takes a romantic interest in.

To coincide with Palo Alto premiering at the Teluride Film Festival the first trailer for the film has been released via Vulture.

Getting this story right hangs very heavily on how that Lolita-esque thread works. I shall be reading Franco’s book very soon to see how he handled it.

Palo Alto doesn’t have a confirmed release date yet.
