Sofia Coppola is no stranger to the film industry. Her father, the famous director, Francis Ford Coppola, directed The Godfather trilogy. Fighting rumors of nepotism, Sofia Coppola became a successful director in her own right. She adapted the 1993 novel, The Virgin Suicides, into a critically acclaimed film.
With the momentum and success of her first feature film, Sofia Coppola went on to write, direct, and produce the drama, Lost in Translation, earning her an Academy Award for Best Screenplay.
