I knew he was hiding...somewhere.
Here's a trailer for the latest from Sofia Coppola. The Academy Award winner hasn't made a feature since 2006's MARIE ANTOINETTE. In the meantime she's been making commercials for Christian Dior and having children--two with Phoenix lead singer Thomas Mars.
In SOMEWHERE, there's some mirror imagery from LOST IN TRANSLATION, the film that won her the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. Wikipedia says, "Stephen Dorff plays Johnny Marco, a Hollywood bad-boy stumbling through a life of excess at the Chateau Marmont. When he receives an unexpected visit from his 11-year-old daughter, played by Elle Fanning, their meeting challenges his lifestyle and forces him to make necessary changes."
Again, that synopsis rings similar to Bill Murray's Bob Harris from TRANSLATION. Albeit, not a bad-boy but simply aging, Harris' relationship with Scarlett Johansson's Charlotte provided both with a spark that was missing in their lives. Dorff appears to need the same nudging from his daughter in SOMEWHERE. The muted simplicity that Coppola brings to the screen allows the scenery and location--always a main character in her films--to really shine through here. I'm looking forward to this one.
