Creator / Sofia Coppola

Sofia Carmina Coppola (born May 14, 1971) is the daughter of the director who brought you The Godfather and cast her in the aforementioned movie as the baby godchild of Michael Corleone for the famous baptism scene. She is extremely talented as a writer and director in her own right. She is married to Thomas Mars, lead singer of the popular French indie rock band Phoenix. Though a good director, she's not that great of an actress. Don't believe what you are reading? Watch The Godfather Part III and come back (or, alternately, watch the video for "Elektrobank"). She also played Anne Chambers in Frankenweenie (she was credited as "Domino"), and one of Queen Amidala's handmaidens (Saché) in The Phantom Menace.

One of the elite few to have won both an Academy Award (best sceenplay for Lost in Translation) and a Golden Raspberry Award (worst actress for The Godfather Part III).

Works of Note:

  • Creator Killer: Her acting career was killed right out of the gate by her performance in The Godfather Part III, while her directing career did not really recover from Marie Antoinette, until 2017 with The Beguiled receiving critical acclaim, coupled with her winning Best Director award at Cannes 2017, making her the second woman to do so.
  • Production Posse: Kirsten Dunst has worked with Coppola in The Virgin Suicides, Marie Antoinette, briefly in The Bling Ring, and in The Beguiled.
