Sofia Coppola, the much-lauded director of the 2003 critical hit Lost in Translation, spent a good portion of last summer shooting her new film, Somewhere, in L.A. and Italy — and today, Apple has the trailer for the film, which revolves around a bad-ass actor (Stephen Dorff), his young daughter (Elle Fanning) who shows up unexpectedly, and their blossoming relationship.
It looks like we can expect more of the same from Coppola, but lucky for her, that’s a good thing. We get the melancholy, gray overcast and a tiny flicker of light at the end of the tunnel, not to mention what seems like will be rock solid performances from both actors, particularly Fanning, who now gets the chance to truly shine as someone other than “Dakota’s little sister.”
What do you guys think of the movie? The Chateau Marmont may be Somewhere‘s answer to Lost in Translation‘s Park Hyatt Tokyo, but do you think it’ll be the next big thing?
