Project Description


It’s raining here, so I’m thinking about booting up one of my favorite rainy day movies: Lost in Translation. There’s something so relaxing about Bill Murray’s performance, the still life shots of life in Japan, and the humor used.

It’s a bittersweet movie, but it’s more sweet than bitter. Some movies leave you filled with dread, but Sofia Coppola‘s indie drama makes you feel hopeful, even in the sad parts. Here’s a spoiler-free synopsis:

A lonely, aging movie star named Bob Harris (Bill Murray) and a conflicted newlywed, Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson), meet in Tokyo. Bob is there to film a Japanese whiskey commercial; Charlotte is accompanying her celebrity-photographer husband. Strangers in a foreign land, the two find escape, distraction and understanding amidst the bright Tokyo lights after a chance meeting in the quiet lull of the hotel bar. They form a bond that is as unlikely as it is heartfelt and meaningful.

If it’s raining where you are, watch the trailer below and see if you want to curl up with a blanket with one of my all-time favorite movies:
