Sofia Coppola “retreads familiar territory with Somewhere, which is a smaller-scale companion piece to Marie Antoinette and Lost in Translation,” writes Indiewire‘s Anne Thompson. “Witty, spare and gorgeously framed [with] breakthrough roles for Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning, [it] should play well for the young smart-house set.”

Okay, but how did Somewhere‘s journey feel? Where does it actually take you, and does the trip seem well worth it (or at least worth it) at the end? Does it succeed on its own terms? Is it finally a single, a ground-rule double…what? These are things I’d like to know.
