New images from Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere have gone online. The story centers on a hard-living movie star (played by Stephen Dorff) who re-examines his life when he’s reunited with his 11-year-old daughter (played by Elle Fanning). The trailer makes it look like a sweet little movie and it comes off like an emotional sibling to Coppola’s Lost in Translation.

Here’s the official synopsis for Somewhere:
World-premiering at the 2010 Venice International Film Festival. From Academy Award-winning writer/director Sofia Coppola (“Lost in Translation,” “The Virgin Suicides,” “Marie Antoinette”), “Somewhere” is a witty, moving, and empathetic look into the orbit of actor Johnny Marco (played by Stephen Dorff). You have probably seen him in the tabloids; Johnny is living at the legendary Chateau Marmont hotel in Hollywood. He has a Ferrari to drive around in, and a constant stream of girls and pills to stay in with. Comfortably numbed, Johnny drifts along. Then, his 11-year-old daughter Cleo (Elle Fanning) from his failed marriage arrives unexpectedly at the Chateau. Their encounters encourage Johnny to face up to where he is in life and confront the question that we all must: which path in life will you take? Filmed entirely on location, “Somewhere” reunites the writer/director with “Lost in Translation” editor Sarah Flack and production designer Anne Ross. Stacey Battat (“Broken English”) is the costume designer, and Harris Savides (“Elephant”) is the director of photography, on “Somewhere.”
