‘Lost in Translation’ Movie Summary

Bob Harris is an over-the-hill movie star alone in Tokyo to film an advertisement for Suntory whisky, and his midlife crisis is straining his 25-year marriage with Lydia. Also, staying in the hotel is Charlotte, a young college graduate whose husband, John, is a celebrity photographer on assignment in Tokyo. Far away from her friends and family, she feels alone and abandoned.

For the first few days, Bob and Charlotte cross paths in the hotel without speaking to one another until they finally meet at the hotel bar one sleepless night. Eventually, on a chance meeting at the hotel pool, Charlotte invites Bob for a fun night out in Tokyo with some local friends, and the two form a warm bond.

  1. Really enjoyed this review guys. Couldn’t agree more with your views (except Matt’s). This is a truly wonderful film which brings more insight the more you view it. And, I just love Bill Murray in this. Also, I’ve heard that the Kelly character was based on Cameron Diaz, don’t know if it’s true though.
