Melbourne’s fantastic Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) is presenting a film kind of retrospective dedicated to Sofia Coppola this February.
We’ll say kind of retrospective because Coppola has only been part of the movie making business for just over a decade, yielding four feature films thus far. Those movies – The Virgin Suicides (1999), Oscar-winning Lost in Translation (2003), Marie Antoinette (2006) and Somewhere (2010) – have established the writer-director as an auteur of sorts, focusing on arresting female protagonists and observational portraits of has-been celebrities in the throes of existential crisis, wrapped in beautiful dreamy visuals and hip indie soundtracks.
Sofia Coppola on Film will screen at ACMI from Thursday 23 to Monday 27 February 2012. For more information and to book, please visit: acmi.net.au and check out Coppola’s portfolio of trailer’s below…
