Sofia Coppola: A Very Murray Christmas

Sofia Coppola: A Very Murray Christmas
By Renee Hernandez

The holidays are here! Since Thanksgiving I have already watched some of my favorite holiday movies, Elf, Home Alone, Christmas Vacation, and jammed out to holiday tunes like Aaron Neville’s “Soulful Christmas.” So, I guess you could say my Christmas spirit is pretty high. Well, I just discovered that I can spend Christmas with The Coppolas and so can you... A Very Murray Christmas directed by Sofia Coppola and starring Bill Murray premieres today on Netflix.

I love the trailer. It reminds me of those old Time-Life and Classic-Soul-Love Greatest Hits commercials. Murray plays himself hosting a live televised Christmas special in New York, but there is a snowstorm and he’s worried that no one will show up to his show. He makes the best of the situation by making new friends, dancing and singing in the holiday spirit. Guests include George Clooney, Chris Rock, Miley Cyrus, Maya Rudolph, Paul Shaffer, Rashida Jones, Jason Schwartzman, the band Phoenix, and more.

Sofia Coppola Favorite: Josephine House Of Austin

Sofia Coppola’s Favorite Lunch Spot — Josephine House of Austin
By Renee Hernandez

My beloved city of Austin, Texas, is known for its certain amount of weird, strong Chicano roots, and true Southern hospitality — a perfect combination, if you ask me. Sofia Coppola has been to Austin a few times, accompanying her husband Thomas Mars when Phoenix headlined the ACL Festival in 2013 and then more recently for a taping of Austin City Limits Live.

In the supplement Summer Pleasures that she guest edited for the May issue of W Magazine this year, Sofia reveals that her favorite lunch spot in Austin is Josephine House. This issue is all about refinement and taking more time to enjoy beauty and the simple things in life. So, in that mood maybe I want to indulge and treat myself to brunch at Josephine House.

Josephine House is a cute little nautical themed restaurant located in the quiet and eclectic neighborhood of Clarksville. Like almost every restaurant in Austin, it has a beautiful patio. I love the fact that the patio is bigger than its indoor space because so much of Austin life is lived outside. Did I mention the grassy front lawn for lounging?

The crowd in Austin is pretty diverse — you may be brunching with students in jeans, families with children, businessmen in suits, peppered with the occasional celebrity. In a shady nook I spotted Robin Tunney (The Mentalist, The Craft) and her lover both with fresh bed head.

I ordered the most non-kosher item on the menu — the Josephine Breakfast Burger. Fried egg, bacon, greens, harissa aïoli, housemade bun, and frites. Endless refills of Mexican Coca-Cola. Super indulgent and absolutely delicious, ya’ll.

Sofia Coppola Directs Daisy Dream

Danke schön to Stefanie Laube for today's guest post, an analysis of the latest advertisement directed by Sofia Coppola — Daisy Dream for her longtime friend Marc Jacobs. To read more of Stefanie's thoughts about Sofia Coppola and her work, please visit her at Lost in Sofia.

Sofia Coppola Directs Daisy Dream
By Stefanie Laube

On June 26, Sofia Coppola released her latest television ad Daisy Dream advertising a new fragrance of the same name by designer and close friend Marc Jacobs. It was also Sofia Coppola who had realized the TV ad for Jacobs’ fragrance Daisy back in 2013.


In the video, we see a dark-haired young woman (played by the German model Antonia Wesseloh) in a white dress, lying in a meadow full of daisies and obviously awaking from a dream. The woman is presented in different shots: wearing a daisy in her hair, slowly turning a daisy in her mouth, writing something into the air with a lit sparkler, pressing her cheek to the Daisy Dream flacon, and finally dancing with her arms up in the air. In some scenes, she looks straight into the camera, once serious, once smiling shyly. In another scene, the woman crosses a meadow so that we only get to see her back view from far away. The ad ends with a close-up of the woman’s mouth slowly forming into a soft smile.


According to colors, the ad evokes the pastel shades of Sofia Coppola’s film The Virgin Suicides (1999). The combination of soft hues and slow dissolves as well as a scene shot through a fisheye lens reminds the viewer of the typically hazy pictures in a dream, seeming blurred and not easy to fully grasp. This dreamy image perfectly suits the product’s name, Daisy Dream. The song that accompanies the ad is titled “End of the Line” by the band Sleigh Bells. This choice of music is typical for Sofia Coppola, who likes to accentuate her films with indie pop and dreamy sounding singing. Note that Sofia also chose Sleigh Bells for The Bling Ring soundtrack; their "Crown on the Ground" backed the film's trailer as well.

Main character

The main character in Daisy Dream looks as if she were borrowed from The Virgin Suicides: On the one hand, the young woman seems soft and vulnerable (e.g. symbolized in the scene with woman’s back view), playful (sparkler, dancing), and innocent (white dress, no make-up) like the Lisbon girls. On the other hand, she is seductive due to her natural beauty (see close-up of her mouth) and stands at the threshold between being a girl and becoming a woman like the character Lux as played by Kirsten Dunst in The Virgin Suicides.


Sofia Coppola’s latest TV ad Daisy Dream perfectly matches her work until up now, especially as far as vision, sound, and main character are concerned. The spot is 30 seconds long and will presumably appeal to a female target group aged 14 to 40, who can or would like to identify with the ad’s main message: the contrast between being innocently dreamy and seductive at the same time.
