Somewhere (2010)

Somewhere, Sofia Coppola

Exploring the ennui of celebrity, Somewhere put an Antonioni-esque glaze on Hollywood’s inner workings and offered Coppola a route back to the style of intimate filmmaking she’s most comfortable with. It’s set in the world where she grew up, at the heart of which sits West Hollywood’s famous Chateau Marmont. “I wanted to do something a lot more simple where I could just focus on one or two characters, and that was a little more quiet,” she remembers.

“I still like to go to the Chateau. The same staff are still there, it’s nice. In fact, when I stayed recently they put me in this room, but I asked to be moved because it was too weird to be in the same room we shot in (laughs). [Stephen Dorff’s] plaster cast was a continuity challenge, because we were shooting things out of order. We had to keep changing the number of signatures depending on where we were in the story. Can I play Guitar Hero? Nope, I based that on a friend of mine who plays it with his daughter. I thought that was sweet."

that truly awful short film she wrote, directed by Francis, part of New York Stories. I cannot stress how bad this thing is but from reading about The Bling Ring, the two are not so dissimilar. More
