Fantastic movie, Jez-san. Sofia Coppola nailed her second directorial effort. A film of ethereal beauty. Wonderful casting and performances. Great soundtrack.

I still trip out that we moved to Japan in the same year. 16 years is a long time.

I was going to go with Twighlight, but thought it was better to stay hidden in the crowd.
