Director: Gia Coppola
Stars: Emma Roberts, James Franco, Jack Kilmer, Nat Wolff, Zoe Levin, Keegan Allen

Based on the James Franco's short story collection of the same name, Palo Alto is a movie that tries to be earnest and contemplative about suburban American youth but ultimately ends up becoming another flick about bored, over-privileged kids. A stellar performance by Nat Wolff can't make up for how grating it is to watch spoiled brats ooze seemingly unfounded teen angst. Tara Aquino
