From Academy Award-winning writer/director Sofia Coppola ("Lost in Translation," "The Virgin Suicides," "Marie Antoinette"), "Somewhere" is a witty, moving, and empathetic look into the orbit of actor Johnny Marco (played by Stephen Dorff). You have probably seen him in the tabloids; Johnny is living at the legendary Chateau Marmont hotel in Hollywood. He has a Ferrari to drive around in, and a constant stream of girls and pills to stay in with. Comfortably numbed, Johnny drifts along. Then, his 11-year-old daughter Cleo (Elle Fanning) from his failed marriage arrives unexpectedly at the Chateau. Their encounters encourage Johnny to face up to where he is in life and confront the question that we all must: which path in life will you take?

2010 Guide Analysis: "No matter what you thought of her period spin on teen rebellion with 2006's "Marie Antoinette", director Sofia Coppola is always fascinating and she finally returns this year with this Sundance competition entry that many have been anticipating. The story itself sounds rather trite, but her directorial style can make the most mundane subject matter fascinating and certainly it feels like a harkening back to her 2003 modern masterpiece "Lost in Translation".
Focus Features, who released 'Lost', has big plans for this should the launch at Park City go as well as expected. The film could kick off a Mickey Rourke-like career resurgence for the talented but generally under-appreciated Stephen Dorff, while one potential surprise will be Jackass's Chris Pontius in a supporting role as Dorff's friend. LA's famed landmark Chateau Marmont hotel also will make for a compelling backdrop. Definitely a must-see."
