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.
