Sofia Coppola’s second feature is a subtle comedy about loneliness and melancholy. An ageing actor (Bill Murray) and a lonely newlywed (Scarlett Johansson) cross paths in a Tokyo hotel and form an unlikely but heartfelt friendship. Both strangers in a foreign land, they share a similar dissatisfaction with their lives and the same need for human connection. The jet-lagged pair explore the city by night, equally compelled and alienated by their strange surroundings. The starkness of the hotel and loneliness they feel is amplified by the ambient soundtrack reflecting the deep sense of nostalgia throughout the film.
