    JG is a lost gem. New Orleans well portrayed. Young Ms. Stewart no less than convincing.

    A very slow pace knocks this drama down a notch in my book. A couple who loses their 15 year old daughter in a car accident drift apart with each passing day. He takes up a weekly visit with a waitress at the pancake restaurant as she falls deeper into depression and prescription drug use / abuse. He attends a plumbing convention in New Orleans after the waitress dies unexpectedly, Once he arrives, he blows the convention and hits a strip club where he meets a 17 year old runaway (with a fake ID so she can dance) who resembles his daughter. They form a bond which is stretched when wife drives from the plains to NOLA. It's a slow, sentimental movie that manages to touch your heart a bit.

    James Gandolfini was always a powerful presence and here opposite an intricate performance from Kirsten Stewart the picture begins with great promise but the story falters long before a limp ending.

    After Twilight I never thought I could take Kirsten Stewart seriously but Welcome to The Rileys was a pretty good movie.

    Kristen Stewart does such an amazing job in this film. And her chemistry with James Gandolfini feels very genuine.
