Lost in Translation
September 3 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC-5
Make it Suntory Time and drink up Sofia Coppola’s masterpiece of new millennia melancholy along with a special menu of Japanese whiskeys.
A 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.
LOST IN TRANSLATION’s small, melancholy tone cemented Bill Murray’s 21st-century career renaissance, introduced Scarlett Johannson to the A-list, and demonstrated that the Sofia Coppola who directed THE VIRGIN SUICIDES was no fluke.
