Palo Alto

Rated R 98 min. 2014


The performances—including Emma Roberts holding the story's center together—are strong, the cinematography (by Autumn Durald) is lovely and Gia Coppola's counterpoint images of childhood innocence occasionally bring some force. But the film possesses little sense of authority or conviction, or even point-of-view. These territories have been so thoroughly mapped—from Fast Times at Ridgemont High to Kids—that you better come strong with something to say besides "teenagers have it tough."
