Watch the Trailer for Palo Alto, Starring James Franco and Emma Roberts


Tribeca Film has released, via Yahoo! Movies, the trailer for writer/director Gia Coppola’s Palo Alto, which adapts the book of short stories by James Franco, who also stars opposite Emma Roberts, Jack Kilmer, Nat Wolff, Zoe Levin, Claudia Levy, Chris Messina and Val Kilmer. Check it out in the player below!

Palo Alto weaves together three stories of teenage lust, boredom, and self-destruction: shy, sensitive April (Roberts), torn between an illicit flirtation with her soccer coach (Franco) and an unrequited crush on sweet stoner Teddy (Kilmer); Emily (Levin), who offers sexual favors to any boy to cross her path; and the increasingly dangerous exploits of Teddy and his best friend Fred (Wolff), whose behavior may or may not be sociopaths.

Palo Alto hits theaters in a limited release May 9.
