Somewhere

Writer/director Sofia Coppola’s new film tells the story of Johnny Marco (Stephen Dorff), a bad-boy actor stumbling through a life of excess while living at Hollywood’s legendary Chateau Marmont Hotel. Cocooned in this celebrity-induced artificial world, Johnny has lost all sense of his true self. Until, that is, his 11-year-old daughter Cleo (Elle Fanning) unexpectedly shows up and unwittingly begins to anchor him. Johnny’s fragile connection to real life slowly revives in her presence. It looks great and I love the use of the demo version of The Strokes' You Only Live Once, which has always been one of my favorite b-sides. It opens on December 22nd.
