First Look: Slutty Kristen Stewart in Welcome to the Rileys
Yesterday it was announced that Welcome to the Rileys would premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. And now today we've got your first look at the film, which stars Melissa Leo, James Gandolfini, and Kristen Stewart. According to reports from earlier this year, Stewart went completely nude in stripper scenes, but that doesn't exactly mean we'll get to see much. The film is about a couple who come across a young stripper that oddly seems to comfort them as they're still grieving over the death of their own daughter. Sounds kind of creepy, but these photos should give you a better sense of what to expect in this. So check them out below.
I wouldn't have thought Kristen Stewart could look so unlike her Twilight character Bella, but she does. I'm also glad to see her exploring other areas of acting while still making boat loads of money on Twilight. Welcome to the Rileys is directed by Jake Scott, a veteran music video and short films director making his second feature following Plunkett & Macleane in 1999. The screenplay was written by Ken Hixon (Inventing the Abbotts, City by the Sea). I'm already planning on seeing this at Sundance, so I'll report back with my thoughts then. Not sure if it'll be incredible, but it at least looks interesting, might have some good potential.
