Region 1 USA/CA (
Roguish Hollywood star Johnny Marco (Stephen Dorff) finds his debauched life of excess unexpectedly interrupted when his 11-year-old daughter (Elle Fanning) shows up at the Chateau Marmont Hotel for an unscheduled visit. Later, as father and daughter reconnect, Johnny begins to reassess his sordid lifestyle. Writer/director Sofia Coppola teams with brother Roman to produce a film executive produced by Francis Ford Coppola, and released by Focus Features.
Stephen Dorff, Elle Fanning, Chris Pontius, Lala Sloatman
4 stars out of 5 -- "The film has an emotional charge....Coppola tells her story deftly enough to make us care."
"[T]his may be the director's most personal film to date....A delicately affecting portrait of a maturing, still pre-teen daughter..."
Sight and Sound
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "A clearly personal effort, SOMEWHERE demonstrates Coppola's featherweight touch with big subjects like identity and human connection."
4 stars out of 5 -- "While everything about SOMEWHERE oozes authenticity, is is the often-unspoken tie between Dorff and Fanning that tickles and gut-punches."
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his is a gentle, exquisitely made, quietly moving delight."
"The movie stands on its own terms as a slow-burning drama of life in a Hollywood purgatory where you can not only check out but leave."
Wall Street Journal
4 stars out of 4 -- "Coppola is a fascinating director. She sees, and we see exactly what she sees."
"SOMEWHERE is a kind of road movie of the soul, a delicate, meditative look at a particular state of mind in a particular time and place."
Los Angeles Times
"[E]xquisite, melancholy and formally audacious....What happens is something marvelous: a film that never raises its voice or panders to your emotions, but that nonetheless has the power to refresh your perceptions and deepen your sympathies."
New York Times
3 stars out of 4 -- "As with every Coppola tone poem, SOMEWHER is laced with moments of pure loveliness...and snippets of knowing humor."
"SOMEWHERE is a perceptive look at celebrity culture....Anchored by engaging performances by Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning, it trains a sharp eye on both the rarefied existence of a movie star and the world of an adolescent shuttled between divorced parents and yearning to find a home."
"[T]he style -- all understatement and studied long takes -- breaks rewardingly with what she's done before...Quietly moving..." -- Grade: B
3 stars out of 4 -- "Dorff and Fanning could not be better....As in LOST IN TRANSLATION, Coppola keeps an eye out for the broken places. "
"SOMEWHERE is her finest movie yet....It's thrilling to watch from moment to moment."
