Johnny Marco (Stephen Dorff) is an L.A. movie star participating in a press junket. Parties are already in swing in his room when he gets there. Sometimes he has mechanical sex with whatever woman makes herself available. Into this glacial chaos comes Cleo (Elle Fanning), his 11-year-old daughter by Layla (Lala Sloatman). When Layla tells Johnny she "needs some time," he ends up hanging out with Cleo for a few days. If the plot sounds reminiscent of director Sofia Coppola's efforts, it is. Like Virgin Suicides and Marie Antoinette, Somewhere spotlights Coppola's wonderful ability to see the worlds in which women move from adolescence to adulthood.
