Q&A Sofia Coppola Beguiled and Lost in Translation Double Feature LA Film Festival


This year in LA Film festival I have the opportunity to attend the Questions and Answers with Sofia Coppola, the first part of the showing was Beguiled I understood why Elle Fannin Appeared in the Vogue Cover with the flowers in Bloom in this movie she as a young Lady seduces Collin Farrel, and causes the tragedy.

Respect to this Sofia Coppola Says that all the actors bring to the characters a plus something else, in case of Collin he was charming and try to give to all the girls all that what they need, and Nicole Kidman bring this sensuality to her character.

Also Coppola says: I just want to show that he was bad since the beginning but the girls has this idea of he could change or he could be a good person, that’s why we put the scene when throw the turtle, it was the point when the girl who found him, realizes he’s not a good man and all the crew start to organizes his death,

This film show the girls as powerful and Amazonas in a world plagued by war and fear, solitude and nostalgic a prison of young ladies with no dragon. Or the dragon with no leg.

Sofia to introduced the next movie Lost in Translation in 35 mm film, says that she don’t remembered the first time when she presented the fil in an audience what was the feedback, but she remembered that in that moment nobody’s was interested in their characters, two Americans lost in Japan.

But this movie represented the culmination of cycle of learnings from her, because she came to LA looking for being a sculptor and when her teacher told her that she could not be one, she got really angry, but then she starts to experiment with photograph, because she had a lot of influence for the in the fashion magazines, and then a star was born, Lost in Translation represent that, the moment in the life in the search of meaning.
