Somewhere | 2010 | R | - 6.1.5

A presumably famous actor (Stephen Dorff) lives day-to-day with no real plan, or care. He is a permanent resident in a Hollywood hotel where women visit frequently and he is supplied with beer, cigarettes and pills. When he gets a call from his ex-wife informing him that he will need to take care of their 11-year-old daughter (Elle Fanning), his newfound responsibilities begin to change his life. Also with Chris Pontius and Michelle Monaghan. Directed by Sofia Coppola. [1:38]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - A man and a woman kiss in bed in a dimly lit room, the man removes the woman's panties (we see her bare thighs), he performs oral sex on her (we see his head move between her legs), the woman moans briefly and realizes that he has fallen asleep.
 A man wearing only a towel wrapped around his waist (his bare chest, abdomen and back are shown) enters a woman's apartment, they kiss and we see the bed headboard thumping against a wall rhythmically (we do not see the couple).
 A woman wearing a bikini opens her top and we see her bare breasts while a man looks at her. Two women wearing short dresses that reveal panties, bare legs and part of their bare buttocks dance around poles while a man lies in a bed and watches them. Two women wearing short skirts and bra tops (revealing bare abdomens, legs, cleavage and part of their bare buttocks) dance around poles while a man watches and sits on a bed; they make thrusting gestures with their hips and one woman kisses the man after the dance is over. A man is shown showering in a couple of scenes and we see his bare chest and back and his bare abdomen when he is wrapped with a towel around his waist. A man is shown lying in bed and covered by a sheet (we see his bare chest and shoulders). Three women wearing evening gowns (they reveal cleavage, bare shoulders and legs) walk toward and pass a man in a hallway. A teenage girl wears a short ice skating costume that reveals her legs. A man lies face down on a massage table with a towel draped over his buttocks (his bare back and legs are shown); the masseuse removes his shirt, touches the man's lower back and shoulders, then drops his pants (we see his bare buttocks and legs) and the man jumps up and wraps himself in the towel (the encounter does not appear to be sexual and the masseuse explains that this is how he works).
 A woman opens her apartment door, a man enters and they kiss; he lifts her up and they go off-screen (sex is implied but not shown).
 A man and a woman in separate cars look at each other and smile while stopped at a stoplight and the man follows the woman along a winding road until she disappears through a private entry. A man sits at a table in a restaurant and two women at a nearby table remark that he's cute.

VIOLENCE/GORE 1 - A man stumbles and falls down a flight of stairs and we see him with a bandage on his arm and a bruised cheek.
 Thick, gooey material is spread on a man's head and face (air holes at his nostrils are left open) and he sits with this mask for several minutes.

SUBSTANCE USE - We see prescription medication vials on a sink and a man takes one pill, and a man takes a pill (it's not clear what it is) with a beer. People drink alcohol and smoke cigarettes in a party scene and a man drinks beer in several scenes. A man smokes cigarettes in several scenes.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Success, divorce, life choices, Hollywood, celebrity.

MESSAGE - Some people need to be responsible for someone else before they can become responsible for themselves.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
