Gia Coppola continues the proud family tradition of making great movies. Clearly inspired by her aunt Sofia Coppola, her debut feature examines teenage life in the American suburbs, with a masterful combination of striking visuals and seductive soundtrack. While the film features both James Franco and Val Kilmer in important roles, it is nonetheless carried by its young cast - and none more so than Kilmer's own son Jack and Emma Roberts (Julia's niece). PALO ALTO is a mesmerizing voyeuristic glimpse of life in teenage Suburbia.
