Thursday, August 10 @ 6:45 pm
Enjoy the film with a glass of Suntory Whisky on the rocks
“Lost in Translation revels in contradictions. It’s a comedy about melancholy, a romance without consummation, a travelogue that rarely hits the road.” TIME Magazine
“Very much a mood piece, the film’s deft balance of humor and poignancy makes it both a pleasurable and melancholy experience.” Variety
“So far as the central relationship goes, the film is almost European in its subtlety and nuance. Cinematic cherry blossom.” Time OutA lonely, aging movie star named Bob Harris (Bill Murray) and a conflicted newlywed, Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson), meet in Tokyo. Bob is there to film a Japanese whiskey commercial; Charlotte is accompanying her celebrity-photographer husband. Strangers in a foreign land, the two find escape, distraction and understanding amidst the bright Tokyo lights after a chance meeting in the quiet lull of the hotel bar. They form a bond that is as unlikely as it is heartfelt and meaningful.
Dir. Sofia Coppola. 104 min. 2003.
