Daily Dose Pick: Somewhere


Sofia Coppola’s new film stars Elle Fanning and Stephen Dorff in a father/daughter story of Hollywood ennui and budding self-awareness that, like much of the director’s work, was inspired in part by her own life.

Currently in limited (aka Oscar-consideration deadline) release, the film features a sparse production style and narrative ambiguity that are more Virgin Suicides than Marie Antoinette, with Coppola returning to her early style of character-driven cinematic intimacy. Plus, with related media projects, such as her online video diary featuring footage shot by her mom, the autobiographical line stays blurry.

Read Coppola’s digital diary, check out her new Artforum interview, explore the film’s official website, and become a fan on Facebook.
