Logline

A VERY MURRAY CHRISTMAS

Christmas Eve at New York City's famed Carlyle Hotel: Bill Murray very reluctantly prepares for a holiday tribute, while a blizzard rages outside. But none of the invited guests stars or audience makes it through the snowstorm. A blackout saves the desperate entertainer's bacon, who settles in at the hotel bar with the staff, a few guests and his faithful pianist.

A VERY MURRAY CHRISTMAS

Sofia Coppola

Sofia Coppola was born in New York City in 1971 to Eleanor and Francis Ford Coppola. When she was just a few weeks old, her father cast der as Baby Michael Corleone in THE GODFATHER (1972). She continued to act in films like PEGGY SUE GOT MARRIED (1986) and STAR WARS: EPISODE 1 – THE PHANTOM MENACE (1999). She became world-famous as a writer-director with THE VIRGIN SUICIDES (1999) and LOST IN TRANSLATION (2003), which earned her a Golden Globe as well as an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. SOMEWHERE won the Gold Lion in Venice 2010. Sofia Coppola often deals with the emotional void beneath glittery surfaces, and the gilded cages of the rich and famous.
