Shy, sensitive April (Emma Roberts) is torn between an illicit flirtation with her soccer coach (James Franco) and a crush on sweet stoner Teddy (Jack Kilmer). One high school party bleeds into another as April and Teddy finally acknowledge their mutual affection in this tale of lust, boredom, and self-destruction. Based on James Franco’s short story collection Palo Alto: Stories, this exploration of the teenage experience is an astonishing debut feature from writer-director Gia Coppola.
