We've all had time to recover from Marie Antoinette, so now Sofia Coppola is back in existential awards-friendly mode with her latest, Somewhere. At least that's what it looks like from the trailer, which turned up online last night.
Yes, it looks like Lost in Translation - disenchanted actor (Stephen Dorff) spends time in a hotel with a young woman. It sounds like Lost in Translation - lots of melancholic indie music to match the mood. But it does differ quite a bit; where Bill Murray struck up a semi-paternal bond with Scarlett Johansson in Japan, Dorff plays Marco, whose LA lifestyle is disrupted when he's forced to strike up a pateernal bond with his 11-year-old daughter, Cleo. Sure it's similar, but it has none of the former's sexual tension. Thankfully.
As you'd expect, there's not much talking going on here. Instead, we get floaty visuals and stylish cinematography. Somewhere doesn't turn up on UK shores until March next year, but even if it doesn't live up to this promising preview, Sofia Coppola's latest has already provided us with one of those rare moments in cinema: a really good trailer we can all enjoy.
Check it out over at Apple, or read on for the full video. Love it.
