From Academy Award-winning writer/director Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation, The Virgin Suicides, Marie Antoinette), Universal Pictures (UK) is pleased to announce the Blu-ray, DVD and digital download release of the critically acclaimed Somewhere on 4th April 2011.
An intimate story set in contemporary Los Angeles, Somewhere is a witty, moving and empathetic look into the orbit of Hollywood actor Johnny Marco (played by Stephen Dorff).
We join Marco as he stumbles through a life of excess, living out of the legendary Chateau Marmont Hotel; he has a Ferrari to drive around in, and a constant stream of girls and pills to stay in with. Comfortably numbed, Johnny drifts along.
Following an unexpected visit from his 11-year-old daughter, Cleo (played wonderfully by Elle Fanning), their encounters encourage Johnny to face up to where he is with life, and confront the question that at some point we all must; which path in life will you take?
Filmed entirely on location, Somewhere reunites Sofia Coppola with her Lost in Translation editor Sarah Flack and production designer Anne Ross. Sofia's brother Roman Coppola takes on the role of producer, whilst her father Francis Ford Coppola is executive producer. The film's atmospheric soundtrack is written by Grammy Award winning French rock band Phoenix, and includes songs from T-Rex, Gwen Stefani, The Strokes, Sebastian Tellier, Foo Fighters, Bryan Ferry, The Poilce and KISS.
