Sofia Coppola certainly has done better work than Somewhere, and let’s hope there is better work ahead for her, as well. A meditative look at an actor coming to grips with the intersection of his real life and the unhealthy, unsustainable one he’s made for himself, Somewhere never really goes anywhere. Stephen Dorff plays the actor whose compass points toward the nearest good time, until he is thrust into full-time-father mode when his pre-teen daughter (Elle Fanning) is dropped in his lap. Both actors are good enough, but they desperately need a script. It’s surprising that Coppola couldn’t provide one.
