ComingSoon.net has your first look at a new clip from Welcome to the Rileys featuring Melissa Leo (“Treme,” Frozen River). We’ve also received more photos of the actress in the film which you can view here.
Opening in New York, Los Angeles and Boston on October 29, Welcome to the Rileys is a powerful drama about finding hope in the most unusual of places. Once a happily married and loving couple, Doug and Lois Riley (James Gandolfini and Leo) have grown apart since losing their teenage daughter eight years prior. Leaving his agoraphobic wife behind to go on a business trip to New Orleans, Doug meets a 17-year-old runaway (Kristen Stewart) and the two form a platonic bond. For Lois and Doug, what initially appears to be the final straw that will derail their relationship, turns out to be the inspiration they need to renew their marriage.
