    Iceland Is Best

    ★★★★★

    A quirky, dreamlike, slightly absurd (the canoe!) and more than a little bittersweet coming-of-age comedy-drama set in Iceland and co-starring Judd Nelson from "The Breakfast Club" and "Suddenly Susan".

    Everything about this movie is beautiful. It looks like a much gentler PG-13 style version of "Holiday" with Victoria Carmen Sonne but much gentler and in reality totally different but still slightly similar?

    I love this film. It's easily my favorite film of 2010. Elle Fanning is riveting, Dorff gives the performance of his career (ok, that's not saying much) and while it's more-or-less a companion piece to "Lost in Translation", it's also Coppola's nod to Antonioni. Love it.
