...the waters of this film are not only still and deep but also bracingly clear, and the most remarkable thing about it may be how much it implies while saying so little.

Coppola’s touching portrait of a father and daughter is so charming, observant and specific, it defies a Hollywood ending. Film Journal International
Somewhere has its funny moments, and its clever moments, but the blankness and passivity of the central character make it peculiarly remote, as if you were watching it from a million miles away. And it doesn’t stick. Like a dream, it is even fading as I’m trying to remember it. This isn’t a bad film, and is probably better and more courageous than most films, plus Elle Fanning is extremely winning, but it is just too distant and uninflected. The Spectator
