Subtly Brilliant

... That is probably the best way to describe Sofia Coppola's new film "Somewhere", the story of a newly famous yet emotionally washed out actor lost in the dull repetition of his lifestyle until the presence of his 11 year old daughter forces him to take responsibility and break normality.

There is little dialogue through the original screenplay and despite the lack of plot we still share sympathy for our main character who seems to nowhere rather then somewhere. The soft noise and imagery through the film is very similar to that present in Coppola's earlier work, The Virgin Suicides.

The cool and calm mood of the film reminded me of some of the soft and quietly breathtaking designs from the Spring Summer 2011 Nina Ricci collection, in which head designer Peter Copping produced a number of sweet, feminine chiffon and silk based ensembles.
