To tell you the truth, I fell completely head over heals with Sofia Coppola movies. She's a true talent and I honestly don't know how everything she writes or produces are so magnificent. I think my favourite work of hers is The Virgin Suicides but I'll talk about that some time later. Also it seems that the movie making talent runs in the family and her sister Gia is a stunner as well, so today I would like to focus more on one of her movies Palo Alto.

It's one of those movies (actually, every movie I like is like that) where it seems that nothing is happening. There are no thrilling plots or sudden movements, the action just effortlessly flows like a river. The main idea is to show a typical american high-school life. I was always jealous of that american high-school dream but as I watched Palo Alto I realized that at least I had the same experience and it made me really happy.

The secret to Coppolas' success is their attention to details. After all, that's what life is about, isn't it? I adore the ability to create beautiful rooms, that at first glance can seem like a mess but it's definitely not. It's also the dim kind of blue lightning, oversized jumpers, messy hair and no traces of makeup (although I tend to believe that there should be some...) and CAN WE TALK ABOUT THE ALWAYS PERFECT SOUNDTRACKS? Jeez, Coppola knows how to drive me crazy.

As the movie goes by, we can see a relationship between April (Emma Roberts) and Teddy (Jack Kilmer) evolving. It's that kind of strange I-don't-know-what-to-do relationship when you don't really know who you are and who you want to be, so you certainly do not know how to show the affection you feel towards another person and everything's just weird and awkward. I don't want to spoil much but the plot also involves James *EGHEM* fabulous *EGHEM* Franco, Nat Wolff, high-school parties, late night car drives, football fields, cigarettes and the never ending confusion.


And can I be allowed to ramble about the styling of Palo Alto? My mom always said that white tights are nonsense and makes the legs look fat but oh come on, if April can rock it, can't we? And her jumpers and sports clothes and stripped t-shirts and coats and dresses, oh God... Of course, I cannot not mention Teddy's style as well which is perfect. Seriously, have you seen a guy dressed that perfectly? That's like my ideal style for a guy. Anyway, I can't think of a single thing that is not fab about this movie, so I just suggest you watching this Coppola masterpiece, folks, I strongly do.
