Sofia Coppola Wins Her Lion In Venice

user

The fact that the dad is also a famous actor adds spice to this satire of Hollywood's self-obession and...

This film is now top of my to see list alongside the 'I'm Still Here' doc. Oh and another surprise, Vincent Gallo won best actor prize for 'Esse...
