#Movie Mom - Lost in Translation #MFRWorg #PlottingPrincesses

Do you ever watch a movie several times?

#Movie Mom



Lost in Translation has to be one of my favorites. Why? Haven't we all experienced lost moments in our lives?

Here's the blurb: An American action star in mid-life crisis travels to Tokyo to film a commercial and develops a friendship with a young college graduate who is having troubles finding herself.

I really liked this movie a lot and it will probably be one of my favorites from Bill Murray. Truly, Bill Murray as an action story? (Ghostbusters doesn't count!) And it gives a look-see into life in Tokyo.

Two favorite scenes are Bob/Bill in a camo shirt. And when Bob/Bill is dozing on the same bed as Charlotte/Scarlett. He reaches over and barely touches her foot. Okay, the third would be the ending.

SPOILER ALERT: What did Bill Murray's, Bob, character say to Scarlett's, Charlotte?

Some say: "I have to go, but I won't let that come between us."

It is a tender scene and Soffia Coppola left it unscripted, letting the characters speak. It's...well done.
