Following her striking screen adaptation of The Virgin Suicides
, Sofia Coppola directed this Oscar-winning comedy drama, a story of love and friendship blooming under unlikely circumstances. The career of well-known actor Bob (Bill Murray) has gone into a tailspin; needing work, he takes a very large fee to appear in a Japanese whisky commercial. Feeling no small degree of culture shock in Japan, Bob spends most of his non-working hours at his hotel, where he meets neglected twenty-something newlywed Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson). Beyond their shared bemusement and confusion with the sights and sounds of Tokyo, the two share a similar dissatisfaction with their lives. Becoming fast friends, they begin to wonder if their sudden friendship might develop into something more.
