The Directors Series begins reviewing the work of American filmmaker Sofia Coppola, taking stock of her early acting career and first forays into the world of directing. Cameron Beyl begins by recounting his encounter with Coppola’s first film:
“[T]he first film I ever saw from director Sofia Coppola was 2003’s Lost in Translation. I was captivated by the quiet sensitivity of her characters and the evocative melancholy of the Tokyo setting, and as such, I’ve come to regard her as an accomplished filmmaker with a uniquely sensitive worldview worth expressing.”
