Palo Alto is almost here. You know, the film adapted from James Franco’s book Palo Alto: Stories. Gia Coppola, granddaughter of Francis Ford Coppola, follows the family trade and makes her directorial debut with the film.
Palo Alto features an impressive cast of characters including Emma Roberts, Val Kilmer, and of course, James Franco. Franco plays a creepy soccer coach who strikes up an inappropriate relationship with one of the girls (Emma Watson) on the team. Drama ensues.
While the trailer peaks my interest, I’m more curious about Palo Alto’s score. Composed by Dev Hynes and Robert Schwartzman (Rooney frontman), the two make an unlikely but intriguing pairing. Watch the trailer for a preview of what to expect from the soundtrack and the film.
Palo Alto opens in limited release starting May 9th.
