The acclaimed filmmaker Sofia Coppola has a new movie out this holiday season. Somewhere is only her fourth film but the expectations are high from the director of The Virgin Suicides and Lost in Translation. Perhaps the beginning of “awards season” will take notice.

When his daughter Cleo (Elle Fanning) comes to visit, it brightens him up, but he doesn’t even have...
