Lost in Translation is a 2003 American romantic comedy-drama film written and directed by Sofia Coppola. It was her second feature film after The Virgin Suicides (1999). It stars Bill Murray as aging actor Bob Harris, who befriends college graduate Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson) in a Tokyo hotel.

Lost in Translation received critical acclaim and was nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor for Bill Murray, and Best Director for Coppola; Coppola won for Best Original Screenplay. Murray and Johansson each won a BAFTA award for Best Actor in a Leading Role and Best Actress in a Leading Role respectively. The film was a commercial success, grossing $119 million on a budget of $4 million.

The movie that helped to catapult Scarlett Johansson’s career to the stratosphere, you can’t go wrong with starting a movie literally on a shot of Scarlett Johansson’s ass but besides that, Lost In Translation really was the movie that showed the true acting abilities of Scarlett Johansson and her performance as Charlotte and her chemistry with Bill Murray in the movie just works so well. Definitely one of the must see movies of her and Bill Murray’s illustrious careers.
