The Hollywood Reporter is featuring Sofia Coppola in it’s special Cannes Film Festival Guide. In an article called “Sofia Coppola: The Trials, Tears and Talent” Stephen Galloway allows us to spend some time with Sofia who has been missing from the film scene since the lackluster reviews of Marie Antoinette.
Sofia will be debuting a new film at Cannes. Bling Ring is based on the true crime spree story that thrilled and shocked the California socialite scene in 2010.
The article continues to talk about Sofia’s creative process, including what her life is like when she is not filming.
“While not shooting or with her two girls (Romy, 6, and Cosima, almost 3) or accompanying her husband on tour, Coppola spends much of her time in an office near her apartment, writing when the mood strikes, responding to e-mails when it doesn’t. She acknowledges that writing is “difficult,” even though she never has directed a movie with a screenplay by someone else.”
Sofia is in good company with this kind of multitasking schedule as she is one of a number of hard working women directors.
