Episode 83. Films de Femmes: Sofia Coppola

In the first of a series of episodes focusing on the cinematic contributions of female directors, Alex and Jonathan look at the career of Sofia Coppola in The Virgin Suicides (1999), Lost in Translation (2003), and The Beguiled (2017). We talk about Coppola’s atmospheric style, the way she presents the relationship between men and women in each film, and how she creates empathy for unsympathetic characters.
