Stephen Dorff knew he had to play the lead role in "Somewhere."
Capsule reviews of films opening this week:
Sofia Coppola's "Somewhere," the tale of an actor who sees the emptiness of his existence through the eyes of his child, won the top Golden Lion prize at the Venice film festival Saturday.
Sofia Coppola gives audiences an insider's look into two worlds she knows intimately in her latest film: hotels and Hollywood.
Sofia Coppola's comic drama "Somewhere," and Darren Aronofsky's "Black Swan" will make their world premieres at the Venice Film Festival, among 22 titles that organizers announced Thursday will vie for the prestigious Golden Lion.
Dorff says he "felt my mom with me for the first time in a year that was pretty dark and pretty empty."
He says his mother, who had died a year earlier, always wanted him to play a role with heart, and Dorff won the part on the first anniversary of her death.
