Ellen Cheshire | 2024 | 100 MINS
Film Talk

With her latest film ‘Priscilla’ on release this month, and an Oscar contender to boot, this talk (including a wealth of clips) will look back at the career of one of the most notable female directors in Hollywood.

In Detail

Dive into Sofia Coppola's cinematic legacy with film writer and lecturer Ellen Cheshire as your guide, as we unravel the stories of women across her thematic depth and directorial evolution.

From the early exploration of female isolation in ‘The Virgin Suicides’ (1999) to the delicate portrayal of cultural disconnection in ‘Lost in Translation’ (2003), we peel back the layers within Coppola's work. We will dive into themes like isolation, displacement, privilege, and the complexities of father-daughter relationships.

Coppola's storytelling skill brings out the personal nuances in each character's journey, adding depth to the narratives.

Join us in uncovering Coppola's unique contributions to the diverse and intricate stories of women in contemporary cinema.
