Lost in Translation may have been the runner up in our What Are You Watching movie vote that took place a few weeks back, but this 2003 kind-of romantic kind-of comedic drama is the winner on our screens this week! Bill Murray stars as a deteriorating American actor finding himself in the midst of mid-life crisis while working in Tokyo. A young college grad and wife to an absent celebrity photographer husband, played by Scarlett Johansson, piques his interest when he encounters her at the hotel bar. Their connection and ensuing relationship demands the analysis of loneliness, fidelity, love, and friendship as the pair attempt to adapt to their new surroundings and generational gap in a modern Japanese City.
Charlotte finds herself alone and questioning her marriage in a strange new city when she moves with her husband to Tokyo for his photography career. Mild mannered and utterly confused, she copes with her new surroundings and feelings of neglect with frequent trips to the hotel bar. While she spends her days wandering the streets of Tokyo and her nights out sipping cocktails with friends, we think she she might as well perk up her wardrobe- because let's be honest, we all know that beautiful things can act as the best mood enhancers.
