Lost in Translation

Francis Ford Coppola's daughter Sophia really comes into her own as a filmmaker with this much-praised comedy/drama. Bill Murray stars as an aging movie actor in Tokyo to shoot a whiskey commercial. Isolated, unhappy and suffering from insomnia in a town where he can't even speak the language, our protagonist bumps into the young wife (Ghost World's Scarlett Johansson) of a workaholic celebrity photog. The two hook up and engage in a series of often hilarious encounters with the citizens of late-night Tokyo. Much more than your standard May-December romance, Lost in Translation is a magnificent paean to loneliness, introversion and simple human connection. 102 minutes
