Lost in Translation

Drama 1h 42m 2003

Winner of an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay and three Golden Globes including Best Actor for Bill Murray, Sofia Coppola’s poignant drama about Americans abroad stars Murray as faded actor Bob Harris. He is in Tokyo to film an inane whisky advert, when he meets Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson), a lonely wife drifting apart from her photographer husband.

These two lost souls find an unexpected and meaningful connection over a few days together. Coppola’s dreamlike mood, combined with Murray’s deadpan humour and the unique chemistry between the actors, make Lost in Translation a modern classic.

‘★★★★★ She conjures a terrifically funny, heartbreakingly sad and swooningly romantic movie from almost nowhere and just makes it look very easy - as well as very modern and very sexy. It is a funky little Brief Encounter for the new century.’ - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
