Somewhere–Academy Award winner Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation) directs this film about a Hollywood actor Johnny Marco, nested in his luxury hotel of choice. Drinking, parties, and women keep a creeping boredom under wraps in between Johnny’s job choices. He is the occasional father of a bright girl, Cleo, who may be spoiled, but doesn’t act it.
