Sofia Coppola's First Role

It is hard to believe that Sofia Coppola is so cool that she made her acting debut at the tender age of three weeks at the climax of one of the greatest films of all times, but thanks to her father's vision (and impeccable timing) she did just that. Francis Ford Coppola cast his infant daughter Sofia as Michael Corleone's godson, Michael Rizzi, in the famous baptism scene from The Godfather. It is impossible to describe the intensity of the sequence unto itself as well as its magnitude within the framework of the film and there in the midst of the action is baby Sofia! Perhaps this is when her predilection for androgynous fashion began...

this is really such a brilliant and clever way to start IWTBAC....you are indeed correct, this is the scene where sofia's flair for style all started....how can one be so cool even as a neonate? fantastic first post!!!!!
