Lost in Translation (2003)

2003 | USA / Japan | Sofia Coppola | ★★★★★

Sofia Coppola's ethereally lovely Lost in Translation is a bittersweet, sensuously photographed chaste romance, featuring a pair of heart-melting performances from Scarlett Johansson and Bill Murray and an alluringly melancholy soundtrack.


"Featuring superior performances from Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson as Bob and Charlotte, two Americans in Tokyo. Bob is a movie star in town to shoot a whiskey commercial, while Charlotte is a young wife tagging along with her workaholic photographer husband. Through their respective insomnias, the two cross paths one night in the luxury hotel bar and strike up a surprisingly intimate friendship. As the unlikely pair venture through Tokyo together, having often hilarious encounters with its citizens, they ultimately discover a new belief in life’s possibilities." Momentum Pictures
