Oscar-Winning Hulu Plus Movies: Lost in Translation
Sofia Coppola took home the award for Best Original Screenplay for her work on Lost in Translation, the tale of two wayward Americans who cross paths in Japan and discover how much perspective they can gain from unexpected encounters.
Lost in Translation is a quiet, understated film about isolation and the search for self-understanding, but for the people paying attention, it’s also quite humorous. It’s a remarkable commentary on how people can find themselves so alone even in an age where we’re more connected than ever.
The film shares a number of things in common with the latest Best Original Screenplay winner, Spike Jonze’s Her — not the least of which is a powerful performance from Johansson. If you’re looking for a cure for stale romantic comedies, this is one of the best Hulu Plus movies for you.
But if you want to check out Lost in Translation on Hulu, act quickly; the site says it won’t be available much longer.
