I saw Somewhere today and....loved it (big surprise, right?).
I still can't decide which film is better....Lost in Translation or this one. For more sentimental reasons, I love Lost more...but visually Somewhere wins hands down...There's a lot to be said for a movie that doesn't have too much dialogue.....It's what's not said that's so intriguing and so telling. How many writers/directors can achieve that? I had high expectations for this movie and I can honestly say I wasn't disappointed.
Elle Fanning is my newest hero & Stephen Dorff rocks in this role. He wasn't lying when he said this role was made for him. Sofia really has a knack for choosing the right actors because I couldn't imagine anyone else playing the main roles--I really couldn't.
So go see this film and bask in the warm L.A. sunshine.....
