Storyline

Hollywood actor Johnny Marco, nested in his luxury hotel of choice, is a stimulated man. Drinking, parties and women keep a creeping boredom under wraps in between jobs. He is the occasional father of a bright girl, Cleo, who may be spoiled but doesn't act it. When Cleo's mother drops her off and leaves town, Johnny brings her along for the ride, but can he fit an 11-year-old girl into his privileged lifestyle? Written by Peter Brandt Nielsen

Trivia

The casting of Elle Fanning was suggested by executive producer Fred Roos, who'd been impressed by her performance in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008). Sofia Coppola was initially reluctant however, believing Fanning to be a typical, professional "Hollywood child actress", but agreed to meet her, and was won over. See more »

Goofs

Cleo toggles between having and not having braces from scene to scene. This is most noticeable in scenes in the living room with Sammy and scenes in Johnny's car. See more »

Quotes

Johnny Marco: Whoa! What the fuck, dude?
Ron the Masseur: Oh. Did they not tell you how I work?
Johnny Marco: No.
Ron the Masseur: I have a website that explains my technique. I feel that if my client's naked, it's just more comfortable if I meet them at the same level.
Johnny Marco: Yeah, it's - it's not for me. Thanks, though. Why don't you just pack it up.
Ron the Masseur: Alright.
Ron the Masseur: [after putting his clothes back on] S'sorry about that.
Johnny Marco: Nah, it's cool.

Out there...
8 February 2011 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

A successful actor in his 40's leads an estranged life from his daughter. He boozes his way through the various engagements his contract with the film company requires him to attend. At some point his 11 year daughter played by Dakota Fanning's younger sibling unexpectedly turns up at his hotel. And a sign that reads: "Let the bonding begin".

Cappola revisits with this movie her own legacy by making a Lost in Translation II, albeit with significantly less oomph than the successful predecessor starring Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson. 'Somewhere' does inspire to the same level of narrative flow (or intentional lack thereof) and it does kind of grow on you as the film progresses. But it never makes the same impact.

This is however still a watchable film in between the lingering shots that is, with some convincing acting by both Fanning and Stephen Dorff who is casted perfectly for the role.

65/100
