Lost in Translation

Director: Sofia Coppola Run Time: 102 min. Format: DCP Rating: R Release Year: 2003

Starring: Akiko Takeshita, Anna Faris, Bill Murray, Giovanni Ribisi, Scarlett Johansson

In 2003, Sofia Coppola followed now-cult classic THE VIRGIN SUICIDES with this new-millennium riff on BRIEF ENCOUNTER, contemplating the ephemeral nature of connection, the quiet angst of life lived as a constant floating state, and the desire for intimacy as seen through a haze of jet lag. In a luxury hotel in Tokyo, 50-something actor Bob Harris (an ever-iconic Bill Murray) and a lonely American newlywed (pre-stardom Scarlet Johansson) navigate barriers, both cultural and emotional, while drifting through restaurants and karaoke with Japanese scenesters. In LOST IN TRANSLATION, Coppola captures both mid-and quarter life crises through a nearly plotless series of vignettes and establishes her trademark directorial vision with unrivaled grace. Featuring original music by Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Air and Squarepusher.
