I didn’t love 2006’s Marie Antoinette, but I thoroughly enjoyed looking at it; as an extended music video, it was a great accomplishment. It was exciting to imagine what Coppola would come up with as a follow up, but now that news of her latest project has hit the airwaves, I’m not so sure I’m sold.Variety reports that Somewhere, slated for a 2010 release, follows the travails of a boozy, druggy Hollywood hedonist (played by erstwhile ’90s It Boy Stephen Dorff!!!) shacked up at the legendary Chateau Marmont, who ugh must “re examine his life” when his 11 year old daughter (played by Elle Fanning, the latest eerily wise beyond her years moppet from the clan that brought us big sister and I Am Sam star Dakota) shows up out of the blue.At the risk of sounding predictably cynical, few cinematic narratives are more played out than the trope of a soulless jerk whose life is turned upside down by the presence of a whimsical creature.
