It was beaming mamas night at the afterparty for Gia Coppola’s Palo Alto at the SET studio space on King Street Friday night. Coppola’s mom, Jacqui Getty, who also plays the mother of Emma Roberts’ character in the film, was all smiles when she arrived with her writer-director daughter after the Toronto debut of her well-received film. “I’m glad it’s almost over,” admits Getty of the film’s hectic Venice-Telluride-Toronto festival run. “I can now send her out into the world, knowing she’s doing just fine.”

Actress Joanne Whalley, whose son Jack Kilmer (son of Val) plays Teddy in the film, shared that she couldn’t believe he wanted to act. “We’ve never talked about Jack acting -- ever,” she says. “And then, all of a sudden, he tells me he’s going to read for Gia’s film.”
