VOTD: Somewhere vs. Lost in Translation

When the trailer was released for Sofia Coppola‘s Somewhere, many people noted the similarities/parallels to the filmmaker’s previous film Lost in Translation. Of course, both movies are about a girl and her father figure getting to know each other while living at a four star hotel. /Film reader Joel Norn put together a video comparing shots from Sofia’s new film and LiT. Watch it now, embedded after the jump.

Movie Trailer: Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere

Sofia Coppola's Somewhere

Focus Features has released the first movie trailer for Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere starring Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning. Watch the trailer now embedded after the jump. It very much feels like a thematic/tonal sequel to Lost in Translation, another Coppola film about famous father figure connecting with a daughter figure (more metaphoric in the other film) in a hotel.

This looks like it could be a return to form for Coppola. Sofia’s first two films Virgin Suicides and Lost in Translation were some of my favorite movies of their respective years of release. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below!

Quentin Tarantino

Quentin Tarantino has led the jury at Cannes, in 2004, but his experience at the Venice Film Festival has been limited to programming a couple of sidebars in ’04 and ’07.

It looks like Summit are trying to extend their reach even further than Eclipse‘s David Slade in picking a director for Breaking Dawn, the final Twilight film (or maybe films). Amongst their picks are three Academy Award nominated directors typically associated with more widely respected fare: Sofia Coppola, Gus Van Sant and Bill Condon.

Now, if you subscribe to the auterist idea that a director might be well matched for a job with thematic and stylistic similarities to their prior successes, then surely Sofia Coppola is just what the doctor ordered. She might be a more ‘serious’ director than Twilight seems to suit but she’s definitely charted these choppy teen waters before. Filter Twilight through The Virgin Suicides or Lost in Translation and I’m sure many of you would find it at a lot more palatable.
