Trailer Tuesday: Franco Fun

Following last week’s tabloid tattle that actor/writer/jack of all trades James Franco was chatting up a 17 year-old via Instagram, the new trailer for ‘Palo Alto’ (based on his cult collection of short stories) is perhaps uncomfortable viewing if you find the age gap objectionable.

Franco stars as a coach with an interest in young Emma Roberts, who looks to be stealing the show in this dark indie tale of teen alienation in a Salinger-inflected California. Personally, I can’t wait.
