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: Can you keep a secret? I'm trying to organize a prison break. I'm looking for, like, an accomplice. We have to first get out of this bar, then the hotel, then the city, and then the country. Are you in or you out? Charlotte: I'm in. I'll go pack my stuff. Bob: I hope that you've had enough to drink. It's going to take courage.
