Being a huge Kristen Stewart fan, I was eagerly awaiting the trailer for Welcome to the Rileys. It premiered today online. It was filmed in Louisiana in 2008 before Twilight was released and Kristen became a star. This is an independent film that has been to Sundance, the Berlin and LA Film Festivals. It has finally gotten a distributor, and we finally get a trailer.
It is the story of a couple, Doug and Lois Riley (James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo), who lose their daughter. Doug makes a trip to New Orleans and finds a girl, Mallory (Kristen Stewart), who looks a lot like his deceased daughter. Mallory is young, troubled, and a stripper. Doug takes Mallory under his wing, taking care of her like she is his daughter, trying to rescue her. Lois travels down to New Orleans and discovers the relationship.
The trailer is really good. Take a look for yourself. Let me know what you think.
Welcome to the Rileys will be in theatres November 5, 2010.
