Lost in Translation Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

Sofia Coppola's second feature-length film focuses on two guests at a Tokyo hotel--Bob (Bill Murray), a middle-aged actor in town to film whiskey commercials, and Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson), the young wife of a trendy photographer (Giovanni Ribisi) who is always out on a shoot. When Bob isn't on the job taking fragmented direction from the Japanese crew, he's receiving faxes on home decorating from his emotionally distant wife. And while her husband is away, Charlotte spends most of her time trying to motivate herself to do more than look out the window at Tokyo's... urban sprawl. So when the two meet in the hotel bar, they strike up an unusual friendship, one that provides a welcome escape from their boredom and loneliness. Nominated for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and winner of Best Original Screenplay at the 2004 Oscars. [show more]

Sofia Coppola's second feature-length film focuses on two guests at a Tokyo hotel--Bob (Bill Murray), a middle-aged actor in town to film whiskey commercials, and Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson), the young wife of a trendy photographer (Giovanni Ribisi) who is always out on a shoot. When Bob isn't on the job taking fragmented direction from the Japanese crew, he's receiving faxes on home decorating from his emotionally distant wife. And while her husband is away, Charlotte spends most of her time trying to motivate herself to do more than look out the window at Tokyo's urban sprawl. So when the two meet in the hotel bar, they strike up an unusual friendship, one that provides a welcome escape from their boredom and loneliness.

Winner of an Academy Award in 2003 for best original screenplay and three Golden Globe awards including best actor for Bill Murray, Sofia Coppola's poignant drama about Americans abroad stars Bill Murray as Bob Harris, a movie actor well past his prime who is in Tokyo to shoot a whiskey commercial. Jet-lagged and disillusioned, Bob spends most of his free time in the hotel bar, where he meets Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson). She is married to John (Giovanni Ribisi), a successful photographer in Tokyo on an assignment, who pays her scant attention, leaving her to her own devices most of the time. Both bored and lonely, Bob and Charlotte become friends, and form a strong and meaningful bond as they explore Tokyo together. The two share a dissatisfaction with their lives: Charlotte is intelligent enough to understand that her marriage is going nowhere, and Bob's relationship with his wife has become more like a business partnership (his wife communicates with him by Fed-Exing upholstery samples for his new study to the hotel) than a marriage. As their friendship develops, the fun and warmth they are getting from it serves to highlight the lack of affection in their marriages, and they both start to gain an insight into what really matters in their lives.
