A somewhat washed-up movie star, Bob Harris (Bill Murray) travels to Tokyo to film an ad for whiskey. He finds the trip unfulfilling until he forges an unlikely bond with a younger, similarly disenchanted newlywed named Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson).
The beautiful Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson) actually tells the story of loneliness and neglect in "Lost in Translation," until she meets a middle-aged movie star named Bob Harris (Bill Murray) and forms an unlikely friendship.
Sofia Coppola's award-winning exploration of loneliness, friendship and an unlikely bond formed by a young newlywed (Scarlett Johansson) and a middle-aged movie star (Bill Murray) who meet as strangers in Tokyo. It's very good.
Bob: It gets a whole lot more complicated when you have kids. Charlotte: That's scary. Bob: The most terrifying day of your life is the day the first one is born. Charlotte: Nobody ever tells you that. Bob: Your life, as you know it... is gone. Never to return. But they learn how to walk, and they learn how to talk... and you want to be with them. And they turn out to be the most delightful people you will ever meet in your life. Charlotte: That's nice.
