We saw SOMEWHERE (2010) on a weekend. Francis Ford Coppola's daughter Sofia has her own style in directing movies. Her movies are distinctive and she is a league of her own even with her father's tutelage. She uses long shots which conveys everything. She also uses the actor's facial expressions to convey the right thoughts in scenes without uttering words. She also avoids movie music enhancements because the actor's actions already conveys the right emotion under her direction. SOMEWHERE is a silly title but with Sofia Coppola's name behind it underscores a masterpiece. SOMEWHERE is about a hard-living Hollywood actor who re-examines his life after his 11 year old daughter surprises him with a visit. In many ways, the movie 'Lost in Translation' style can be clearly felt in this movie. Stephen Dorff plays Hollywood actor Johnny Marco with Elle Fanning (younger sister of Dakota Faning!) as the daughter Cleo. The movie is sad, quiet, simple, stoic but interestingly a gem. I also love the pole dancing scenes ...LOL. My ratings: 4.5 out of 5 Biscuits !
