Palo Alto Rated R

Palo Alto R PT98M


Shy, sensitive April (Emma Roberts) is the class virgin, torn between an illicit flirtation with her soccer coach Mr. B (James Franco) and an unrequited crush on sweet stoner Teddy (Jack Kilmer). Emily (Zoe Levin), meanwhile, offers sexual favors to every boy to cross her path -- including both Teddy and his best friend Fred (Nat Wolff), a live wire without filters or boundaries. As one high school party bleeds into the next -- and April and Teddy struggle to admit their mutual affection -- Fred's escalating recklessness starts to spiral into chaos. An unflinching portrait of adolescent lust, boredom, and self-destruction, PALO ALTO is a teen movie for the ages -- an astonishing debut feature from writer-director Gia Coppola, based on the book 'Palo Alto: Stories' by James Franco and featuring new music from DevontA Hynes (Blood Orange).
