Lost in Translation (2003) vs. Her (2013)
Sofia Coppola and Spike Jonze were married for 4 years before divorcing in 2003. Many people believe that Lost in Translation (2003) is about their marriage, Scarlett Johansson playing Sofia, describing the events that lead to the downfall of their relationship. Similarly enough, it is speculated that Her (2013) is Spike Jonze’s response to Coppola’s depiction, showing his point of view. The films feature similar themes and shots, like the one above.
In order to acquaint himself with his three lead actors, director Alfonso Cuarón had each of them write an essay about their characters, from a first-person point of view. Emma Watson wrote a 10-page essay. Daniel Radcliffe wrote a one-page summary, and Rupert Grint never even turned his in. (x)
