Somewhere


Somewhere
In some ways a followup to her very successful ''Lost in Translation'' which once again throws two very different and lonely people together. He's a famous movie star, living in a hotel, and filling his days with drugs and women. He can have anything he wants, but is bored with life. She is his young daughter that he sometimes looks after. When her mom has to go away for some time, the daughter has to come and live with him, which leads to major changes in his life. Reviews have been mixed, although the film has won some awards.

Box Office
Sara Maria Vizcarrondo quote iconThis film will only cement Coppola's indie cred and people will travel to see it in limited run. Oscar voters will take note. Box office should be strong.

Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconCoppola is a fascinating director. She sees, and we see exactly what she sees.
15
eye Weekly
Jason Anderson quote iconThe Golden Lion winner at the Venice Film Festival last summer, Somewhere certainly suggests that Sofia Coppola likes to not only stay inside her comfort zone, but order room service while she’s there.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconThis movie works best as a sleep tonic. Somewhere isn't just frustratingly slow-moving; it's inert.
8
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconBy taking her sweet, subtle time to tell the story of a Hollywood child (Elle Fanning) spending time with her neglectful movie-star daddy (Stephen Dorff), writer-director Sofia Coppola defies American audiences who want their films like their food: fast.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconGood but not great, Somewhere is an interesting if slow and not particularly novel look at how the famous are different from but also quite similar to the rest of us
