Somewhere - S. Coppola (2010)

The plot is sort of 'Three Men and a Baby' except that instead of Tom Selleck & co you have Dorff's decadent moviestar, the baby has grown into an angelic preteen (Fanning junior : brilliant) and an existential void has replaced the wholesome family fun of the 1987 film.

Obviously, Coppola steers clear of the usual cliché pitfalls, talented as she is.
Her drawn-out static shots and obsession with loneliness make for a certain poetry, even though this is far from being her best film.
