Sofia Coppola’s film Somewhere won the Golden Lion prize at the Vencie Film Festival Saturday. Somewhere, starring Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning, is about a movie star whose 11-year-old daughter helps him see the emptiness of his own life. The jury was unanimous in its decision to award the top prize to Somewhere. Quentin Tarantino, who headed the jury, said "This film enchanted us from its first screening.” Michelle Monaghan and Benicio Del Toro also star in the film. In 2003, Coppola won an Oscar for her screenplay Lost in Translation. Other winners at the 11-day, 24-film festival were Álex de la Iglesia, who won Best Director for Balada Triste de Trompeta (A Sad Trumpet Ballad), and director Jerzy Skolimowski, who won a Special Jury Prize for Essential Killing.
