Marriage is supposed to be a symbiotic relationship where spouses use each others gifts to lift one another up, and while Phoenix frontman Thomas Mars and director Sofia Coppola are merely life-partners, it looks like they get the gist of what it means to be committed to one another in so many ways. Just look at what happened at this weekends Venice Film Festival.
Coppolas film, Somewhere, which includes sonic contributions from Phoenix, took home the festivals highest prize the Golden Lion Award. While it was probably Coppolas story about the transformation of a star washed up in a life of excess that won the award for her, we cant help but think that soundscapes provided by our favorite Frenchmen who scored portions of the film contributed the to the overall emotional impact of the film, which also stars Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning (yes, Dakotas sister).
Theres no release date set for the soundtrack which also features a Strokes demo by Julian Casablancas and the movie doesnt come out until December 22nd, so youll have to settle for this trailer in the meantime.
