Sofia Coppola, 2003
Thu, June 16, 2011 8 PM
Come early to stake out a spot on the lawn for Lost in Translation, our first Wex Drive-In movie of the year.

Sofia Coppola's celebrated follow-up to The Virgin Suicides, follows the budding relationship between an aging actor (Bill Murray) and a recent college graduate (Scarlett Johansson) as both cope with failing relationships and the existential loneliness brought about by a stay in Tokyo. The soundtrack includes music by Air, Squarepusher, and Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine. (102 mins., 35mm)

This film kicks off our summer outdoor Wex Drive-In series and previews our major summer movie series of July and August, Kinema Japan. Both will take viewers to Japan, with selections that encompass the entire spectrum of Japanese filmmaking, from samurai classics such as Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo (1961) to sci-fi stunners including the original Godzilla (1954).

Snacks and beverages will be available for purchase. In the event of rain, the film will screen in Mershon Auditorium at 9 PM.
