An Early Look at Sofia Coppola's "Somewhere"

Sofia Coppola’s latest film, Somewhere, “a story about an actor dealing with the emptiness of his life thanks to his child,” which, LOL, arrives in December, in old-fashioned Oscar season, and mostly what I’ve heard about it is really positive! I think a lot depends upon your feelings about Stephen Dorff. My feelings about the Dorff are “absolutely.” But there are other parties who are not as appreciative: “So Sofia Coppola has now, we can pray, completed her trilogy on the problems of rich people hanging around at luxury hotels with nothing to do (Lost in Translation, Marie Antoinette, Somewhere). (Versailles is not technically a hotel, but more or less, it was, so it counts).” Oh, it goes on!
