Sofia Coppola: Characterization and Relatability

In a recent podcast with The Treatment, Sofia Coppola discusses her newest film, “On the Rocks,” starring Bill Murray and Rashida Jones.


One of the things the podcast heavily focused on was the characterization of the two main characters and how relatable they are to everyday life. The film follows a father and a daughter having martinis and discussing the relationships between men and women from two very different perspectives.

There is something in this film for everybody to relate to on some level and in the podcast, Sofia Coppola expresses that even herself as the director relates to the characters of the film on an emotional level.
The actors were encouraged to bring a little bit of themselves into the role and to play off of that. This creates these very real dynamics that the characters can expand upon in the film. As an audience member watching a film with heavy ties to reality and relatability, it makes it much easier to connect with the film on an emotional level.
