LOST IN COPPOLA: THE FILMS OF SOFIA COPPOLA
In honor of her upcoming drama Priscilla (2023), which brings to the big screen a female perspective on the controversial relationship between Priscilla and Elvis Presley, we are showcasing a handpicked selection of Sofia Coppola’s melancholic, dream-like works exploring notions of femininity, adolescence, desire and solitude.
Born into filmmaking royalty, as the child of Eleanor and Francis Ford Coppola, during the production of the latter’s mobster magnum opus The Godfather, Sofia Coppola has since made a household name for herself as the director of bittersweet dramas such as the endearing Lost in Translation (2003) and the playfully personal Marie-Antoinette (2008). Her films display the delicate complexities and transient nature of human relationships and the ever-so-familiar sensation of loneliness while navigating (young) adulthood, captured through a distinctly feminine lens. Coinciding with the release of her highly anticipated Priscilla (2023), we are delighted to bring Coppola’s most poignant works to our cinema this January.
