First Trailer for PALO ALTO Starring James Franco and Emma Roberts


By Amirose Eisenbach April 3, 2014


The first trailer has been released for the new James Franco and Emma Roberts dark drama called "Palo Alto". Making her directorial debut, Gia Coppola, a third generation of the famous Coppola clan of filmmakers, has helmed the picture and also wrote the screenplay.

Based off of a collection of short stories from Franco himself, the story focuses on teenagers and the struggles they face with their families and their surroundings. It seems to explore themes presented by other coming-of-age stories but told in an intimate, indie light. Franco and Roberts are always fantastic and it also features the familiar face of Val Kilmer, who we haven't seen in a film for some time.
