One of my favorite screen writers and directors is Sofia Coppola. Do you know her? Some of my favorite movies and movie soundtracks have been made by her. There are quite a few Sofia Coppola movies that have come out in the past decade. The first one I ever saw of hers was “Lost in Translation.” Previously on Hart Beat I’ve mentioned how much I love the music from that movie.
One of my other favorite movies by Sofia Coppola is “Marie Antoinette” which came out in 2006. I remember obsessing over the trailer in high school and buying the movies soundtrack so I could listen to it the first day I got my license. I think that the trailer for this movie does a great job of showing Sofia’s talent.
For those wondering, the song played in the trailer is called “Age of Consent” and is sung by the band New Order. One of their other songs, “Ceremony” was included in the movie soundtrack.
The newest Sofia Coppola movie is called “Somewhere” and was released in 2010. I can’t believe I haven’t seen it yet. Here is the trailer. Why don’t we both make a pact to see this movie as soon as possible?
I really have to talk about these songs too because, let’s be real, Sofia Coppola is a music and movie genius. The first is by Pheonix and is part of the very long song called “Love Like a Sunset.”
The second is a version of the song “I’ll Try Anything Once” by Julian Casablanca (from The Strokes).
Look her up, she really is amazing.
