Sofia Coppola's (Lost in Translation) new film Somewhere tells the story of Johnny Marco (Stephen Dorff), "a bad-boy A-List actor stumbling through a life of excess while living at Hollywood's legendary Chateau Marmont Hotel. His days are a haze of drinks, girls, fast cars and fawning fans. Cocooned in this celebrity-induced artificial world, Johnny has lost all sense of his true self. Until, that is, his 11-year-old daughter Cleo (Elle Fanning) unexpectedly shows up and unwittingly begins to anchor him. Johnny's fragile connection to real life slowly revives in her presence. So when the time comes fro Cleo to leave, his sense of loss is palpable, but the gift of hope she has also brought him leads to a beautiful, poetic denouement imbued with all of Coppola's remarkable powers to conjure mood and atmosphere."

Somewhere will hit theaters on December 22nd 2010.
