Can’t sleep? Grab a glass of Santori and join us for a 35mm screening of Lost In Translation. A neglected young wife (Scarlett Johansson) walks into a Tokyo bar for a pick-me-up. She chats with a faded movie star (Bill Murray). The rest is history, so to speak. The unlikely couple's escapade incites hours of deep discussion and discovery about their personal lives. The result is a bond that is, “Just Like Honey,” in their world of melancholy. Written and directed by Sofia Coppola, Lost in Translation was nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Picture in 2004. Coppola took home Best Original Screenplay that year, cementing her as a budding auteur in her own right out of the shadow of her father, Francis Ford. At the time of the film's release, Roger Ebert exclaimed, "I loved this movie. I loved the way Coppola and her actors negotiated the hazards of romance and comedy."
