Lost In Translation's Age Gap Between Scarlett Johansson & Bill Murray Has Director Conflicted

Director Sofia Coppola has commented on the age gap between Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson in the 2003 film Lost in Translation. Johansson was 17 at the time of filming, playing a character in her early 20s, while Murray was in his early 50s. Coppola revealed that her perspective on the age difference has changed over the years, but she believes it plays into one of the core themes of the film - the idea that people can have romantic connections that aren't sexual or physical.
