Lost in Translation

DIRECTED BY - Sofia Coppola

Sofia Coppola's second feature-length film focuses on two guests at a Tokyo hotel--Bob (Bill Murray), a middle-aged actor in town to film whiskey commercials, and Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson), the young wife of a trendy photographer (Giovanni Ribisi) who is always out on a shoot. When Bob isn't on the job taking fragmented direction from the Japanese crew, he's receiving faxes on home decorating from his emotionally distant wife. And while her husband is away, Charlotte spends most of her time trying to motivate herself to do more than look out the window at Tokyo's urban sprawl. So when the two meet in the hotel bar, they strike up an unusual friendship, one that provides a welcome escape from their boredom and loneliness.

"...What's astonishing about Sofia Coppola's enthralling new movie is the precision, maturity and originality with which the confident young writer-director communicates so clearly in a cinematic language all her own..."

- Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly

"...One of the purest and simplest examples ever of a director falling in love with her star's gifts. And never has a director found a figure more deserving of her admiration than Bill Murray..."

- Elvis Mitchell, New York Times
