The Fingal Film Festival
have announced the opening film will be the Irish premiere of Palo Alto
from debut writer-director Gia Copolla, starring James Franco and Emma Roberts with thanks to Metrodome Distribution.
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 favours to every boy to cross her path. An unflinching portrait of adolescent lust, boredom, and self-destruction, “Palo Alto” is an astonishing debut feature from writer-director Gia Coppola, based on the book “Palo Alto: Stories” by James Franco. (Over 15s)
