When word first hit that Sofia Coppola was finally gearing up for a new film after 2006's Marie Antoinette, and that she was bringing Stephen Dorff along for the ride, I felt one of those all-too-rare jolts of premature and exorbitant anticipation. Though I love much of Coppola's work, it wasn't for her alone, but that she was offering the possibility of something I'd been hoping for for years -- for Dorff to get his modern due. (Much like Erik calling him the next Mickey Rourke.)

I've loved him since The Power of One, and most especially when he's basking in unique indies like I Shot Andy Warhol and Cecil B. Demented. But no matter what talents he's shown, he's always danced outside the spotlight. But now there's happy news: I really think Coppola's new feature, Somewhere, might change that, and I'm not just speaking from fangirl glee. The new trailer backs me up.
