Based on James Franco’s book of the same name, Gia Coppola’s directorial debut charts the lives of a group of teenagers growing up in Franco’s home suburb in California. Centring on April (Emma Roberts), a teenager who embarks on an increasingly complex affair with her high school soccer coach (Franco), Teddy, the artistically minded classmate who casts longing glances at her from afar, and his best friend Fred, whose increasingly outlandish behaviour threatens to result in terrible consequences, Palo Alto, is a brilliantly drawn vision of confused youth. Attuned to the insecurities of teenage life, it’s loaded with powerful performances, and seems destined to become one of the iconic American high school films.
