Two features. Sofia Coppola's second feature-length film 'Lost In Translation' focuses on two guests at a Tokyo hotel. Bob (played by Bill Murray), a middle-aged actor in town to film whiskey commercials, and Charlotte (played by Scarlett Johansson), the young wife of a trendy photographer (played by Giovanni Ribisi) who is always out on a shoot. When Bob isn't on the job taking fragmented direction from the Japanese crew, he's receiving faxes on home decorating from his emotionally distant wife. And while her husband is away, Charlotte spends most of her time trying to motivate herself to do more than look out the window at Tokyo's urban sprawl. So when the two meet in the hotel bar, they strike up an unusual friendship, one that provides a welcome escape from their boredom and loneliness. Coppola's minimalist script allows Murray and Johansson to give moving yet subtle performances as people who are lost in the limbo of a foreign country, but find each other for comfort and companionship. Also includes 'Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind'.
