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.

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!

Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere Draws on Family History

somewherecasting_1

Now there are suggestions that her new film, Somewhere, draws directly on her experience in the limelight with her father, Francis Ford Coppola. Read More »
