A teen movie for the ages, and the debut feature from writer-director Gia Coppola – based on the book “Palo Alto: Stories” by James Franco.
The film follows four dissolute teenagers as they busy themselves with community service, unrequited love, and sexual escapades in the sun-kissed, Californian city of Palo Alto.
Featuring a stand-out performance from Emma Roberts in the film’s lead role as April, a high school student seduced by her amorously creepy soccer coach Mr B (Franco), the film is a worthy debut feature from yet another prodigiously talented member of the Coppola family.
Not on UK general release until 17 October 2014.
