Watch: Visit 'Palo Alto' With New Trailer For Gia Coppola's Feature Debut Starring Emma Roberts & James Franco

The name Coppola carries with it some weight, not just because of the legacy already attached to Francis Ford Coppola, but also the oeuvre carved out by Sofia Coppola. But now Gia Coppola (Francis’ granddaughter) is getting in the family way with “Palo Alto,” her debut feature film and a new trailer is here as it gears up to hit theaters.

Based on the book by James Franco, who also stars, along with Emma Roberts, Jack Kilmer, Nat Wolff, Chris Messina, Val Kilmer and more, the film follows a group of teenagers facing complicated lives and decisions in California. From the virginal soccer player crushing on her coach, to artists with no boundaries, the movie dives right into the messiness of adolescence. And it’s semi-successful, with our review out of the Venice Film Festival last year calling it “fairly disposable, simply due to how well-trodden the territory is, but it’s still a strong and soulful debut from Coppola.”

“Palo Alto” opens in limited release on May 9th. Watch below.
