Film trailer: Sofia Coppola’s 'Somewhere'
Tuesday 15 June 2010
The first trailer for the new film
Somewhere by writer/director Sofia Coppola (
Lost in Translation,
Marie Antoinette) has just been released.
This drama stars Stephen Dorff ( Public Enemies, I Shot Andy Warhol) as a Hollywood actor who must re-examine his fast-lane lifestyle when surprised by a visit from his 11-year-old daughter, played by Elle Fanning (Babel, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button).
Her first film since 2006, Coppola's trailer sets the mood with a series of images showing the developing connection of the father and daughter - perhaps with an autobiographical inspiration to her famous father Francis Ford Coppola. This introduction offers an impressionistic vision of the intimate contemporary story. With minimal dialogue, the footage features the music of French band Phoenix and American band The Strokes.
The film hits theaters on December 22, in time for Oscar consideration.
And why are 'southern' ways of speaking spreading north?
