Lost in Translation (2003)
Written & Directed by Sofia Coppola

The more you know who you are, and what you want, the less you let things upset you.” ~ Bob Harris

Does age really change how you see the world, and yourself in it? Does it get easier, as Bob suggests to Charlotte? Do we believe him, or is he trying to convince himself that life has gotten easier?

One of the things I love the most about the relationship between Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson) and Bob (Bill Murray) is the way it illustrates that at any age we are all confused and still searching for ourselves, and for connections with others. That never gets easier, in my opinion, but the possibility of connecting never goes away either. The latter, it makes it all worth it, for those moments shared with another, sometimes unexpectedly.

Does it get easier?

  1. I believe it. A lot less thing bother me. The things that I love and loathe I am more passionate about. When we’re younger, some of us, worry what people think about what we like and what we think. The older we get the less that matters. I like what I like, if you don’t get it too bad. and this is a good thing. Cool post!
