Go See This... NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sofia Coppola directed this movie. If you have seen Lost in Translation then you know she has a certain style when she directs a movie. She does a great job expressing the point she is trying to get across with this movie. And i really liked the scenery in this too. I thought it was amazing. This is like an artsy type movie if you know what I mean. She has a way of filming such simple scenes and turning them into something extraordinary. For example, there was this scene where Johnny takes Cleo to her ice skating practice. There's this long sequence where Cleo is skating to some Gwen Stefani song. I dont know why but i really liked that scene. You could tell Fanning trained to learn how to ice skate cause it was amazing. I really hope Sofia keeps making more of these good movies cause this one was well done.
I thought Stephen Dorff did a really good job playing Johnny Marco. Personally, I think he is an underrated actor who deserves better roles. Dorff was perfect for as Johnny Marco. They needed a bad boy actor for Marco and they got one. Elle Fanning was wonderful as Cleo too. She was very charming in this. Fanning has a bright future ahead of her if she keeps this up. There is also a cameo from Benicio del Toro in this.
Somewhere can be slow at sometimes but BE PATIENT!!!!!!!It will pay off at the end. I probably put Somewhere in my top 3 of favorite for Independent movies. I was just bored one night so I rented this on I-tunes and I was glad I did. I watched it again before my 24 hours were up for it. If your in the mood for a good art type film, watch this. You wont regret it.
