With Somewhere, Sofia Coppola gives us a proxy stay at the notorious Château Marmont

“‘Who is Johnny Marco?’ an Italian reporter asks. It’s a question that’s been eating him up inside, we can tell. Johnny Marco is Hollywood’s bad boy movie star and he’s having an existential crisis. We see him post-interview in the back of a limo heading down Sunset Boulevard. He needs to decompress and wants anonymity. There’s only ever one place to go during times like these if you’re lost in the belly of the beast that is Hollywood. In order to transcend this cataclysmic breakdown, one only needs to check into the Château Marmont.”
