If you were to ask me to name my favorite actor, I’d say Scarlett Johansson. I’ve seen almost every movie she’s been in, cringing at the lows (IRON MAN 2, THE BLACK DAHLIA) and relishing the highs (MATCH POINT, LOST IN TRANSLATION). She’s been in a number of great films in her career like VICKY CRISTINA BARCELONA, THE PRESTIGE, THE HORSE WHISPERER, GHOST WORLD and GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING.

Lost in Translation – 2003 – dir. Sophia Coppola

Lost in Translation, Sofia Coppola’s tale of two lost souls in Japan, is a touching parable of loneliness and companionship among a sea of strangers.

Neglected newlywed Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson) has a husband, John (Giovanni Ribisi), a workaholic photographer who largely leaves Charlotte to her own devices. She spends her days at first lounging around a hotel, initiating a warm friendship with actor Bob Harris (Bill Murray) and ultimately expanding her radius of exploration to Tokyo and its surrounding areas.
