Lost in Translation
Set in the rainy streets of Tokyo, Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Translation follows recent college grad Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson), who’s left behind in her hotel room to kill time while her photographer husband (Giovanni Ribisi) works on assignment with vapid celebrities she openly mocks. One night at the hotel bar, Charlotte chances upon another visiting American, Bob (Bill Murray), a movie star in town to make a quick promotional buck. An unlikely friendship is soon forged over their shared experiences of mid-youth/mid-life crises, Japanese customs and well-coiffed karaoke.
Why You Should See This Film
Shot in just 27 days, this film feels like a melancholy holiday abroad with a pair of enigmatic acquaintances. Some fifteen years after its initial release, Lost in Translation remains a certified modern classic and one of Sofia Coppola’s very best. Between the luminous cinematography of Lance Acord and a soundtrack featuring My Bloody Valentine, Air, and Phoenix, Coppola carves out a tenderly funny story with two brilliant leads. It’s also Bill Murray’s absolute favourite of his own performances. Who could disagree?
