POP UP CINEMA BRIGHTON
White Wall Cinema presents
FRIDAY JUNE 30TH
+PRE FILM INTERVIEW WITH SPECIAL GUEST- AUTHOR HANNAH STRONG
DIRECTOR: Sofia Coppola
STARRING: Stephen Dorff & Elle Fanning
Join us for a special screening of Sofia Coppola's Somewhere, plus a pre-film discussion with Little White Lies Associate Editor and author of 'Sofia Coppola Forever Young', Hannah Strong.
Hannah's book explores the 'tonally diverse, meticulously crafted, and unapologetically hyperfeminine aesthetic' of the great Sofia Coppola, director of several modern classics including The Virgin Suicides, Marie Antoinette, The Beguiled and more. Something of a companion piece to Coppola's outstanding Academy Award winning film Lost In Translation, Somewhere (itself the winner of the Golden Lion at the Venice International Film Festival) once again explores the ennui of a famous temporary hotel resident detached from everyday life and family.
Stephen Dorff puts in a career best performance in this remarkably touching and intimate story of a jaded Hollywood actor who, whilst spending time recuperating and giving in to the various vices afforded a star at Beverly Hills famed Chateau Marmont hotel, is suddenly confronted by a visit from his 11 year old daughter (Elle Fanning). As the pair navigate their somewhat uncertain father daughter relationship, a story of true tenderness emerges as the listless and disinterested movie star reassess his life outlook.
Undoubtedly semi-autobiographical, Somewhere is a hypnotic, funny, tender, understated and meditative piece of cinema that taps into a deep well of personal emotion for the director all powered by Coppola's trademark beautiful cinematography and glistening pop culture soundtrack.
As well as the on-stage discussion and film screening, there will be a chance to purchase (and have signed) one of Hannah's beautiful and fascinating books.
