I watched this last night with my friend, Ary. We hated the beginning and the ending, but really loved the middle. And we both agree that the visuals are beautiful. Sofia Coppola’s one of my favorite directors, but I’m not completely sold on this one. I will probably watch it again.

“I am Sofia and when I grow up I want to be middle size—not fat and not skinny. And I wanna be a teacher or maybe I wanna be a nurse.”

    —5 year-old Sofia Coppola


Also in this audio:

  • Sofia counts 1-10 in Chinese;
  • Sofia sings the Philippine national anthem!!

This. Is. Adorable.

“So much has been said about the girls over the years. But we have never  found an answer. It didn’t matter in the end how old they had been, or  that they were girls… but only that we had loved them… and that they  hadn’t heard us calling… still do not hear us calling them from out  of those rooms… where they went to be alone for all time… and where  we will never find the pieces to put them back together.”
This film introduced me to Sofia Coppola and I’ve been a big fan ever since.
