Roger Ebert gives four-star love to Somewhere

Posted December 23, 2010

Roger Ebert loves Sofia Coppola new feature Somewhere. The thing that Ebert picks up on in his review is the utter veracity with which Coppola observes the world of entertainment—from publicists and stars to parking attendants and hotel clerks. As he writes:

Coppola watches this world. The familiar strangers on the hotel staff are on a first-name basis because a star's world has become reduced to his support. Hookers and sex partners come and go. There are parties filled with strangers, most of them not excited to see a star because they see stars constantly.
