Insomniatinged tale of emotional infidelity

Sofia Coppola’s insomniatinged tale of emotional infidelity remains a heartfelt, hypnotic gem. Aging actor Bob (Bill Murray) meets graduate Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson) in the bar of their austere Tokyo hotel and, bonded by mutual culture shock and ennui, they fall easily into a quasi-platonic relationship. The lingering, clinical camerawork is as distancing as it is arresting, but every frame hums with suppressed feeling as the tender central dynamic unfolds, with Murray’s debonair, quietly bewildered turn planted firmly at the film’s beating heart.
