No, that's not a castle, it's LA's own Chateau Marmont. This movie screams, "I'm too f%ck*g cool for school." Why, you ask? First off, it's a film from honorary LA native Sofia Coppola, which guarantees amazing cinematography, original music, and a great soundtrack. (I happen to love her movies, but to those who don't, at least you get the above mentioned treats.) Sofia's boyfriend heads up the one and only band Phoenix, which did the original music along with a brilliant song by Julian Casablancas, lead singer of the Strokes (curbside listening service available below).
I also think the cast is pretty frecking cool ... Elle Fanning, Benicio Del Toro, Michelle Monoghan, singer C.C. Sheffield, Simone designer Katie Nehra, Coppola cousin and lead singer of Rooney, Robert Schwartzman (Winward '01), Taylor Locke (Crossroads), Sonja Kinski (Whatever happened to her? She used to be a girl about town) Laura Ramsey, and super model Erin Wasson, whom I loveee.
