Story


"Welcome to the 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.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Welcome To The Rileys is way too humorless for a film in which Stewart repeatedly refers to her genitals as her "cooter."..”
by Nathan Rabin [A.V. Club]
“..Stewart gives no hint she understands a complex character like Mallory..”
by Shirley Sealy [Film Journal International]
“..The film has its moments, with much pleasure to be had from the pairing of Gandolfini and Stewart..”
by Richard Mowe [Boxoffice Magazine]
