Sofia Coppola on the movie poster for Somewhere
That’s from one of my favorite moments in the film, where Stephen Dorff’s character and Elle Fanning, who plays his daughter, take a day off together around the Chateau Marmont, and hang out by the pool instead of going where they’re supposed to. It’s their moment of bonding, poolside. You can see a little of a Gucci billboard behind them in the bushes.
Sofia Coppola on Elle Fanning
She’s great, really smart and funny and full of life, and I love that she’s a real kid, excited about what she’s going to be for Halloween and ballet class.
