DVD: Sofia Coppola's Lovely "Somewhere," One of 2010's Best

Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere won the Golden Lion, the main prize, at the Venice Film Festival in September, but when it was released in December the small-scale film seemed to get lost in the flood of louder, more crowd-pleasing awards-bait movies.
