When you first hear “Sofia Coppola” and “The Little Mermaid” in the same sentence, you don’t immediately think perfect match. So when it was announced earlier this month that the acclaimed director Sofia Coppola (The Virgin Suicides, Lost in Translation) would be taking on the live action version of the Disney classic, the news was met with mixed feelings. However, once you understand the true, dark, mystery of Hans Christian Anderson’s original fairy tale you’ll see that Coppola is the only lady who could do this story justice. Read More

The Bling Ring is based on a true story so strange, it could only have happened in the moneyed ’burbs of L.A. Five teens—four girls, one guy—take their obsession with luxe living to the next level by burglarizing celebrity homes for thrills, bills, and prescription pills.
In Sofia Coppola’s retelling of the crew’s crimes, Emma Watson, Taissa Farmiga, Katie Chang, Claire Julien, and Israel Broussard play teens as familiar with couture fashion and exclusive nightclubs as they are with drugs and gangster rap. Read More

Moviefone published an article celebrating the fact that old men are getting to direct films still! Apparently there's some sort of privilege attached to being an old white guy... who knew?! The site claims it's remarkable that these old farts are still being allowed to make films since Hollywood is so "fixated on the young." I would argue that old white guys in positions of power is nothing new, in fact, especially in an industry where only one woman has received the highest possible honor (see: Kathryn Bigelow, below).

While the world fussed over Kim Kardashian's three wedding gowns and Kate Moss' glamorous Galliano dress (anyone else surprised he still has any friends after this?), I'm sitting here swooning over Sofia Coppola's gorgeous, refreshingly not white, lavender dress that she wore to wed Phoenix's Thomas Mars last Saturday, August 27th. The dress was simple and sweet, just like the director herself, with layers of chiffon all along the bottom. Read More
