Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere

Somewhere Poster

Slash Film has what they think is Somewhere‘s one-sheet. If it had more quirk and Futura to it, it could easily be a new Wes Anderson poster. The plot of her newest film may, on the surface, seem like a ho-hum drive down what-else-is-new ave:

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.

But if past predicts the future, her take on this famous Hollywood storyline, “loner dad meets long lost kid who changes him,” will be original and bust any expectations. Coppola seems to be drawn to stories about characters who feel isolated and alone despite being surrounded by people. After really digging The Virgin Suicides and Lost in Translation, I was apprehensive about Marie Antoinette, after relenting and giving the film a chance, i was more than pleasantly surprised. So, I’ll definitely be giving Somewhere a shot despite the seeming staleness of the plot.
