Editorial Reviews

Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning star in Academy Award winner Sofia Coppola’s witty and moving story about the special bond between a father and his daughter. Actor Johnny Marco (Dorff) is leading the fast-paced lifestyle of a tabloid celebrity. He’s comfortably numb with his life of women and pills when his 11-year-old daughter, Cleo (Fanning), unexpectedly arrives at his room at Hollywood’s legendary Chateau Marmont hotel. Their time together encourages Johnny to re-question his life in ways he never expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful meditation on loneliness and love February 5, 2011
Format:DVD
Somewhere is a beautiful meditative film about Johnny Marco (played by Stephen Dorff), a lonely, bored, dissolute Hollywood star who, by spending time with his daughter, Cleo (played by Elle Fanning) learns to love again. Elle Fanning is absolutely delightful in the role -- she is so sweet, natural, and at times, charmingly awkward. Her youth and unpretentious beauty are an effective foil to Stephen Dorff's character, who parties hard on a regular basis and looks it. Johnny is in a state of existential ennui; he lacks emotional connection with others and lives a life of instant gratification that is devoid of meaning. When Cleo's mother leaves Cleo with Johnny for an extended period of time, it gives him the chance to renew his relationship with her and thaw his heart. By learning to love Cleo, Johnny is forced to face the emptiness in his life and decides to change.

5.0 out of 5 stars coppola knows about the reality of movie stars January 3, 2012
Format:DVD
sophia coppola, the writer and director, is francis coppola's daughter. her cousin is nicholas cage. another cousin is jason schwartzman (Bored to Death on HBO), whose mother is talia shire (Rocky), francis's sister. sofia was married to director spike jonze. she has probably known no one but movie people her entire life. her movie is about a movie star who ,far from being a fascinating guy, is closer to being a total zero in personality. and, of course, everyone who barely knows him thinks he is fascinating. sofia coppola paints a devastating portrait of a top actor in the first half of this movie.

i found it very funny but you might miss the satire it is so low key. johnny, played by stephen dorf, is like an unmade bed walking around. he can barely be bothered to comb his hair, change his clothes or do much but passively participate. he hires twin pole dancers and falls asleep during their act. he falls asleep during sex. his costar finds him a big nothing. women text him complaining about his behavior which is mainly that he isn't following through with them. he can sit in a makeup chair for hours with everything but his nostrils covered, completely cut off from stimulation, and be fine with it. he also likes hot tubs, massages, tv shows like FRIENDS reruns and video games. when he's asked about the meaning of a movie he's been in, he draws a complete blank. when he stands next to the movie poster of himself, you would never know it is the same guy. he likes driving but most of the time he's not even going anywhere. the movie opens with him aimlessly driving back and forth in the desert. he's asked at a party if he ever studied with anyone, perhaps the method school of acting, but he says no. he just does it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite over the rainbow... March 24, 2011
Format:DVD
Being the fan of Sophia Coppola that I am, `Somewhere' was my most anticipated film from last year. I literally could not wait to see it, so much so that I downloaded it to my computer months before it was released in theaters near me so that I could watch it.

For me, `Somewhere' doesn't quite live up to my expectations.

First things first, this is not a bad film at all. In fact, it is a very good film. Some of my friends have noted that they feel this is Coppola's most mature offering, and in many ways I totally agree. She has a beautiful knack for fleshing out the humanity in her stories with such graceful subtlety. She masters that here, allowing the fluid movement of the scenes to do most of the talking. While some would make sweeping statements that this is, `by far', we worst film, I can only half agree. While she shows definite maturity here, this is my least favorite of her films. In that same respect though, I can't say `by far' since the film is a very good film. I just found it too familiar. Coppola often regurgitates similar themes in her films, but she manages to make them feel fresh and unique to her own style. She doesn't quite manage that here. It drips with style (it is beautiful to look at and it moves with the grace and fluidity that we expect from Coppola) but it feels too rehashed to be anything monumentally moving. It felt like 'Lost in Translation' lite. I really liked it, and the performances are beautifully detailed, but the film itself reaches short of the greatness I was expecting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Somewhere is memorable April 19, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
I'm not going to waste a lot of space defending this film. This is one movie that truly has people divided regarding its merits. For me, "Somewhere" was beguiling, fascinating, humorous and ultimately deeply moving. I suppose Sophia Coppola's films are an acquired taste but if so I can only state that those who are able to tune in to her work have great taste in movies. Coppola's screenplays are very spare, and this film follows that tradition. The storytelling that the director utilizes goes beyond a formal script but don't think for a minute that what is going on onscreen (or not going on, for that matter) is nothing at all. The characters here are utterly real, the emotions are genuine and the day to day, seemingly mundane, along with joyous and melancholy moments, create a specific point of view very unique to this filmmaker. "Somewhere" doesn't quite have the magic that made "Lost In Translation' so unforgettable, but it succeeds nevertheless in creating characters the viewer can care about. Stephen Dorff gives a memorable performance as a not quite middle aged movie actor whose life has reached an impasse. Holed up in Hollywood's famed Chateau Marmont between movie press engagements, Dorff as Johnny Marco seems to be deeply depressed, living day to day in nearly non-existence mode, until his young daughter (the lovely Elle Fanning) shows up. Again, I'm not going to spend a great deal of time going over plot details (I can hear now several voices asking, "What Plot?"). My recommendation is, See This Film.

it's a perfect film for lovers of pure cinema - subtle but emotionally powerful, driven by acting, visuals and music rather than plot and dialogue. an artful gem.
