A new life for Life Without Zoe?

When Life Without Zoe, directed by Francis Ford Coppola and written by a very young Sofia, was released as part of the anthology film New York Stories in 1989, it was largely panned by movie critics, who called it silly.

But 20 years later, the film is enjoying a new life among fashionistas.  Nylon magazine this month featured the 12-year-old Zoe -- who lives in a luxurious hotel like Eloise -- as a cinematic icon, complete with her oversized Chanel wardrobe.

Here's a 10 minute clip of the film from YouTube. You can decide:  charming or indulgent?

You know, I found this clip really charming! I know life like this wouldn't be so grand, but, as a mother of a 9 and 10 year old, I know that this is exactly how they would dream life to be, Maserati, driver, hot choc delivered by the butler, dream on I say! It's a great thing to look through the eyes of a child from time to time.

THanks for this. I (denizen of so very many hotels) have always been an Eloise fan. And sophia, of course.

What's wrong with indulging a little fantasy? I think it's quite sweet!

I think it's both charming and indulgent - and I was so disappointed when the clip ended! Is there any place to find the entire film?
