SOFIA COPPOLA (Director/Screenplay by/Producer) won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay and received nominations for Best Director and Best Picture for her second feature film LOST IN TRANSLATION starring Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson as two lonely Americans in Tokyo. Coppola also won the Golden Globe for Best Screenplay, garnered a Golden Globe nomination for Best Director and won Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best Feature at the Independent Spirit Awards, among numerous other honors.

Coppola grew up in Northern California, and after doing costume design on two feature films, she studied Fine Art at California Institute of the Arts. She then wrote and directed the short film LICK THE STAR, which had its world-premiere at the Venice International Film Festival.

Coppola's feature film directorial debut was THE VIRGIN SUICIDES, which she adapted from Pulitzer Prize winner Jeffrey Eugenides' novel of the same name. The movie starred Kirsten Dunst, Josh Hartnett, James Woods, and Kathleen Turner. A world premiere at the Cannes International Film Festival, THE VIRGIN SUICIDES subsequently earned her the MTV Movie Award for Best New Filmmaker.
