'Welcome to the Rileys' Review by 'Chicago Reader'


From Chicagoreader 

A conservative Indianapolis businessman (James Gandolfini) heads to New Orleans for a convention and, still grieving over the death of his only daughter eight years earlier, takes a cynical 16-year-old prostitute (Kristen Stewart) under his wing. 

Meanwhile, his carefully coiffed but badly agoraphobic wife (Melissa Leo) summons the courage to leave their suburban home, get behind the wheel of a car, and come after him. The hero's psychological transference is so blatant that even the characters begin commenting on it after a while, yet this modest three-hander is capably acted and genuinely touching.
