The trailer for Welcome to the Rileys (aka, Kristen Stewart’s stripper movie) has debuted online. For those wanting to see Ms. Stewart in yet another awkward and uncomfortable role, boy howdy, are you in for a treat.
Welcome to the Rileys is directed by Jake Scott from Ken Hixon’s (Inventing the Abbots) script. It stars James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo as a middle-aged couple near the end of their marriage. When Gandolfini’s character heads to New
Orleans for some breathing room, he meets up with Stewart’s Mallory, a teen runaway who strips for sandwich money. (Stop, it’s not like that.)
Filling a void in the couple’s lives, Mallory becomes their de facto daughter. Lines like “Hey, stop
stripping!” and “Sweetie, don’t do drugs,” fill the rest of the film.
The film made its debut at Sundance earlier this year. It’s set for a limited release in October.
