Filmfest 2017

German Age Rating

Chloe is the star at her school. If she wants a seat in the back row, the other kids stand up for her. When she feels like it, she squirts ketchup on other girl's dresses. But one of her plans sticks out of all the teen intrigues and cruel pranks – each one of which could one day turn against its practitioner.

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.
