Emily, meanwhile, offers sexual favors to every boy to cross her path – including both Teddy and his best friend Fred, a life wire without filters or boundaries. As one high school party bleeds into the next – and April and Teddy struggle to admit their mutual affection – Fred’s escalating recklessness starts to spiral into chaos.
Plot: Palo Alto weaves together three stories of teenage lust, boredom, and self-destruction: shy, sensitive April, torn between an illicit flirtation with her soccer coach and an unrequited crush on sweet stoner Teddy; Emily, who offers sexual favors to any boy to cross her path; and the increasingly dangerous exploits of Teddy and his best friend Fred, whose behavior may or may not be sociopathic.

Slow and aimless like the teens it portrays
As aimless as the teens it portrays, Palo Alto see’s yet another Coppola enter into the movie making business, this time Gia, Francis’s (The Godfather) granddaughter and Sophia’s (Lost in Translation) niece who in adapting James Franco’s collection of short stories of the same name has created an at brief times realistic and insightful look into modern day teenage hood yet stumbles in actually saying anything of merit in a tale that starts depressing and ends there to.
Palo Alto clearly wants to be a showcase for the Los Angeles brackets of teenagers, the type that party first and study later and the type that have fun by chopping down trees with chainsaws late at night. Palo Alto actually feels like more of a fever dream of a cautionary tale or look into this life as to be honest it never really connects on a level that feels wholly realistic. There type of films work best when scenarios and characters feel real or relatable and while Palo Alto can for brief moments do this, a majority of situations and players either do things that feel utterly ridiculous (like a lot of teens do, just not to this level) or downright unbelievable. This would largely stem from the source novel from Franco, who seems to make his business in being weird/alternate but Coppola shows enough here to suggest that he could’ve done more to make the material better.
What Coppola does succeed in is in her direction of her young cast, while supports Nat Wolff and Zoe Levin don’t do a lot to suggest they’ve got a career ahead, with Wolff in particular an incredibly annoying presence (how his been cast in so many movies since this effort is beyond me), young leads Emma Roberts and son of Val, Jack Kilmer show a real talent in their field. Roberts has long been a talent to watch (and much more bearable than her relative Julia) and her portrayal of confused April is a great piece of work while Kilmer as similarly wondering Teddy suggests he may one day to achieve the success of his father, with hopefully his father’s weight gaining fall. Author of the novel himself Mr. James Franco also makes an appearance in what is on face value an on screen version of himself as creepy older guy looking to gain a much younger girlfriend.
There are some nice touches to this film by Coppola, a keen eye for a nice shot makes you think she has a career ahead of her and some great lead turns by Roberts and Kilmer, but nothing could help such a cold and un-relatable piece of work ever become anything more than acceptable. We’ve been blessed over the years to have countless and memorable entries into the young teen/coming of age drama catalogue and with Palo Alto you’re much better off to find one of these, instead of watching this instantly disposable offering.
2 Grand Theft Auto playing Val Kilmer’s out of 5
Nothing original, a very dull movie about teenagers. Had next to no good moments, and really the characters are very unoriginal and not interesting. The movie very poorly shows backgrounds of the characters, even the main ones. Literally a movie without a plot, there is no goal of the movie, no action…
The only thing that was heavily accented in this movie, was that most men are jerks and douche bags, who just want to use women for sex and nothing else, women just need to wait for their white knight to rescue them from the countless jerks they have gone through and be with them. Feminists would love the essence of this movie, for sure.
Emma Roberts playing her usual role, nothing different from all the other movies she is in a leading role, but in this movie, it really felt like it doesn’t revolve around here as much.
