Please Give

Accomplished and unpleasant, Please Give is an engaging and clever film. Thorny, but first-class.

Wild Target

Nice cast, shame about the script. Wild Target is an average hit, but Nighy's aim is as sharp as ever. Worryingly enjoyable.


"You like me so much more than you think you do". Elegantly awkward and emotionally honest, Greenberg sticks with you for hours.

Black Death

"Be on your guard, God has slipped off the horizon" - unexpectedly intelligent and consistently dark, Black Death doesn't fail to leave its mark.

The Killer Inside Me

A gripping and unnerving account of one man's cold-blooded mind, The Killer Inside Me makes for harsh viewing. Hard-core, but high quality

The Brothers Bloom

A story about telling stories, The Brothers Bloom is enjoyable to the last. It’s far from Brick, but far from boring.

Death at a Funeral

Imagine inviting a bunch of shouty annoying people to a funeral. Then paying to have them stand around the coffin being all shouty and annoying.

Sex and the City 2

Distractions aside, these ladies no longer understand, or fit into, the real world. Sex and the City 2 is nothing more than a two hour gimmick.

Prince of Persia: Sands of Time

Newell's newest skimps on plot but delivers what matters: frenetic, fast-paced action.

Streetdance 3-D

Streetdance 3-D is traditional British fare: an acrobatic urban panto with the heart of a rom-com. Unavoidably fun.

Robin Hood

Large in scale and gritty in tone, Robin Hood is a generic re-imagining of a much-loved hero. Bloated, but watchable.

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.
