The Cinematic Aesthetic of Sofia Coppola


What makes up a Sofia Coppola film? What're the criteria to consider something as Sofia Coppola-esque? Is it with the pastels or soft lighting? Or the drunk-then-sobered cinematography? It's a very distinct, evident artistry that is seen in many of Coppola's films -- "The Virgin Suicides (1999)", "Lost in Translation (2003)", "Marie Antoinette (2006)", "Somewhere (2010)" and "The Bling Ring (2013)".

There's something realistic yet fanciful and wandering in the dreamscapes of Coppola. The atmosphere is always airy, along with the 'cool-girl' trope on camera. This super-edit of Jacob Swinney might have the answers.
