Elle Fanning has grabbed a plum part in director Sofia Coppola’s latest film Somewhere. Dakota’s younger sister is poised to shine on her own in the father/daughter drama set in Los Angeles. Fanning is the 11 year-old Cleo, who gives her father (played by Stephen Dorff) a reason to change. Here is the official synopsis:
Johnny Marco (Stephen Dorff) is a bad-boy A-List actor stumbling through a life of excess while living at Hollywood’s legendary Chateau Marmont Hotel. His days are a haze of drinks, girls, fast cars and fawning fans. Cocooned in this celebrity-induced artificial world, Johnny has lost all sense of his true self.
Until, that is, his 11-year-old daughter Cleo (Elle Fanning) unexpectedly shows up and unwittingly begins to anchor him. Johnny’s fragile connection to real life slowly revives in her presence. So when the time comes for Cleo to leave, his sense of loss is palpable, but the gift of hope she has also brought him leads to a beautiful, poetic denouement imbued with all of Coppola’s remarkable powers to conjure mood and atmosphere.
Quiet and understated, Coppola’s movies are magnificent hidden gems to discover and she brings out wonderful performances in the actors she casts (think Scarlett Johannson and Bill Murray in Lost In Translation.) I look forward to seeing Elle and Stephen light up the screen. Check out the trailer below.

The Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in California had a visit from The Last Airbender stars Jackson Rathbone and Nicola Peltz as the duo met with fans on Thursday afternoon. Tiger cubs were cuddled, otters were held and pictures were taken.
Rathbone and Peltz will play the live-action version of Sokka and Katara, the Water Tribe siblings who accompany Aang (Noah Ringer) as he journeys to the North Pole, learns waterbending and kicks Fire Nation booty along the way.
More super cuteness inside:
