  • As in "Lost in Translation," Coppola keeps an eye out for the broken places. That's when Somewhere is really something. show more

  • Whatever the intention, Somewhere, in its odd, detached way, is compelling viewing. show more

  • It's easy to speculate that the loving Cleo and the frequently absent Johnny are stand-ins for Ms. Coppola and her own famous father, but Somewhere needn't be seen as a film à clef. The movie stands on its own terms as a slow-burning drama of life in a Hollywood purgatory where you can not only check out but leave. show more

    I found this movie going no where and frustrating. Maybe that\'s how it\'s supposed to be and how Johnny felt.
