Samuel Goldwyn Films and Destination Films have released a brand new trailer for ‘Welcome To Rileys’ which stars James Gandolfini, Kristen Stewart and Academy Award nominee Melissa Leo. Helmed by acclaimed film and music video director Jake Scott (including videos for R.E.M., Radiohead, U2, Oasis, The Strokes and many more) the film first premiered at Sundance 2010 to critical acclaim for its emotionally charged performances, and has since gone on to play at Berlin International Film Festival and Los Angeles Film Festival.

James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo star as a married couple whose relationship has deteriorated due to a family tragedy years earlier.  In what is widely considered her most dramatic and mature role yet, Kristen Stewart plays Mallory, a teenage runaway who transforms the couple’s relationship after their lives intersect.

The film is slated to hit theaters on November 5, 2010.

Synopsis: ‘Welcome To Rileys’ is a powerful drama about finding hope in the most unusual of places. Once a happily married and loving couple, Doug and Lois Riley (James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo) have grown apart since losing their teenage daughter eight years prior. Leaving his agoraphobic wife behind to go on a business trip to New Orleans, Doug meets a 17-year-old runaway (Kristen Stewart) and the two form a platonic bond. For Lois and Doug, what initially appears to be the final straw that will derail their relationship, turns out to be the inspiration they need to renew their marriage.
