”Welcome to the Rileys” (East Coast Premiere) - Directed by Jake Scott. The Rileys have been struggling in their marriage since losing their teenage daughter eight years prior. Once a happily married couple, Lois (Melissa Leo) and Doug (James Gandolfini) have grown distant, trapped in grief. Lois has become agoraphobic and won’t leave the house, while Doug tries to escape his pain with philandering. On a trip to New Orleans, Doug meets Mallory (Kristen Stewart), a teenage runaway. Doug recognizes an innocence in Mallory, which rekindles his paternal instinct, and brings new meaning to his life. He decides to stay in New Orleans to help Mallory. Meanwhile, Lois must summon all her courage to overcome her agoraphobia and venture south before her marriage is lost. Courtesy of Samuel Goldwyn Films.
