You may not be lucky enough to be at the Telluride Film Festival today, but let Vulture bring a little bit of the festival to you: We’ve got the exclusive trailer for Gia Coppola’s film Palo Alto, premiering in Telluride tonight. Based on the first book of short stories by James Franco, the movie stars Franco as a football coach who takes a too-romantic interest in teenage babysitter Emma Roberts; in other intertwined stories, we meet troubled kids Teddy (Jack Kilmer, whose father, Val, also makes a cameo) and Fred (Nat Wolff), who drives into a wall on purpose in the film’s first scene. Press play, and enjoy some complicated coming of age.

It can’t be film festival season without at least a couple projects involving James Franco and 2013 is no different. Over the coming weeks we’re going to see yet another film directed by the prolific polymath and another based on his book of stories, which he will star in. So let’s dive right in.
We have to admit that we sort of forgot “Palo Alto” was even happening, but it is notable for a few things. Firstly, it’s the feature debut of Gia Coppola, yet another family member getting into the filmmaking business. She’s mostly done music videos and commercial work for now, and this marks her first time not only directing, from a screenplay she penned herself. Secondly, the film has a pretty interesting cast including Emma Roberts, Nat Wolff, Val Kilmer and….Franco, playing a football coach? Okay, we’re intrigued. Here’s the official synopsis:
An unflinching take on teen angst and adult ineptitude, PALO ALTO is from first-time helmer Gia Coppola. Teddy, April, Fred and Emily use booze, marijuana and sex to get through the turmoil of adolescence.
“Child Of God” will play both Venice and Toronto, while “Palo Alto” is only going to Italy. Images below.
