Ciné-Club: Lost in Translation (Booze on Screen)

A bitter-sweet existential tale by Sofia Coppola, observing two displaced characters searching for meaning in a foreign city. 

Bob Harris (Bill Murray) is a well-known American actor whose career has gone into a tailspin; needing work, he takes a very large fee to appear in a commercial for Japanese whiskey to be shot in Tokyo. Feeling no small degree of culture shock in Japan, Bob spends most of his non-working hours at his hotel, where he meets Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson) at the bar. 

Cinematic cherry blossom.
