A trailer has been released for Gia Coppola‘s high school drama Palo Alto. Based on a book of short stories by James Franco (who co-stars in the film), the film features interconnected narratives involving a soccer player (Emma Roberts) getting involved with her coach (Franco), a precarious friendship between two young men (Jack Kilmer and Nat Wolff), and a young woman (Zoe Levin) who bases her self-esteem on having sex. This trailer doesn’t do anything for me, but that’s because I’m not really hooked by the subject matter. That doesn’t mean I think the film will be bad. It’s just not something that piques my interest at this point. If you are fan of these kinds of movies, then you should probably put it on your radar.
Hit the jump to check out the Palo Alto trailer. The film also stars Claudia Levy, Chris Messina, and Val Kilmer. Palo Alto opens in limited release on May 9th.
