Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning in Somewhere

Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning in Somewhere

Sofia Coppola follows her last hit movie, Lost in Translation with Somewhere and I can’t wait to see this one.

Johnny Marco (Stephen Dorff), the focal character in Somewhere, belongs to a social class that might be called the homeless elite. A Hollywood star of undefined wattage, he doesn’t have an ocean-front Malibu palace perched on an earthquake fault line. He stays at the Chateau Marmont on Sunset Blvd. — that funky-cool faux-French hotel where Garbo and Howard Hughes lived, and John Belushi and Helmut Newton died. All amenities available: twin blondes performing an elaborately sexy pole dance, right in Johnny’s room, and an old waiter who’ll sing Elvis’s “Teddy Bear” on request. Johnny is restless; he knows his life needs direction, but in which direction? Well… somewhere. For now, though, he’s a permanent transient.

Somewhere could be described as a comedy-drama about self-discovery. Or the inside-movie story of a loner star, we’ll let you know what we think!
