Lost in Translation

In writer/director Sofia Coppola's lyrical romantic tale, Bill Murray is a past-his-prime American movie star who comes to Tokyo to shoot a television commercial. While staying at the hotel, the married Murray meets compatriot Scarlett Johansson, the young, frustrated wife of celebrity photographer Giovanni Ribisi. The two lonely souls strike up a friendship while watching TV, singing karaoke, and going to parties, but can their relationship go any further? Understated, beautifully shot film won Coppola the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.
