Sofia Coppola discusses new film, ’Somewhere’

To hear Sofia Coppola explain it, the genesis for her drama "Somewhere" — an episodic tone poem about celebrity and fatherhood in modern Hollywood that reaches theaters Wednesday — can be pin-pointed to a personal place: the intersection of intimately observed family experiences and tabloid fabulism.

Early reviewers have had a field day reading levels of cinema-as-confessional into "Somewhere," which won the Golden Lion for best film at the Venice International Film Festival this year. Specifically, the writer-director’s relationship with her dad, "Godfather" auteur Francis Ford Coppola, has been widely presumed to provide the basis for "Somewhere’s" plot-propelling father-daughter characters’ frisson. But the younger Coppola blanches at that idea.
