Somewhere won the Golden Lion Award for Best Picture at the 2010 Venice International Film Festival. From Academy Award-winning writer/director Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation, The Virgin Suicides, Marie Antoinette), Somewhere is a witty, moving, and empathetic look into the orbit of actor Johnny Marco (played by Stephen Dorff).

You have probably seen him in the tabloids; Johnny is living at the legendary Chateau Marmont hotel in Hollywood. He has a Ferrari to drive around in, and a constant stream of girls and pills to stay in with. Comfortably numbed, Johnny drifts along. Then, his 11-year-old daughter Cleo (Elle Fanning) from his failed marriage arrives unexpectedly at the Chateau. Their encounters encourage Johnny to face up to where he is in life and confront the question that we all must: which path in life will you take?

Filmed entirely on location, Somewhere reunites the writer/director with Lost in Translation editor Sarah Flack and production designer Anne Ross. Stacey Battat (Broken English) is the costume designer, and Harris Savides (Elephant) is the director of photography, on Somewhere.

  1. Mark Bell says:

    Winner has not been contacted yet. Likely after this weekend (holidays and all disrupt everything).

  2. Dakid says:

    Was the winner contacted already?

  3. Dario says:

    “I have to be going now, but I won’t let that come between us, okay.”

  4. Alan says:

    “I wish I were your age again, so that we could stay here, together.”

  5. Daniel M. says:

    Since we already see that he is willing to run out to her, and that she is crying, we know how these characters feel, and what he says isn’t necessary because we already see their emotion.

  6. Craig A. says:

    “Meeting again may sound like a good idea, but it couild go wrong. Like an album of Tom Waits covers.”

  7. Anthony says:

    It doesn’t matter, the movie is perfect the way it is, because that is what the movie is about. The audience feels as left out as the characters do when they are lost in translation.

  8. Marty says:

    “The time i’ve spent with you, I will always remember.”

  9. Dakid says:

    “In seven odd years, don’t break up with Ryan Reynolds.”

  10. Amanda says:

    I like to think he said ” I looked in the mirror today and i realized i am to pretty for you”

  11. Darren B. says:

    “I won’t see you till the next making of Suntory. Go to that man and tell him the truth, okay?”

    But I like to think he said, “For relaxing times, make it Suntory time.”
