The Hollywood Reporter is featuring Sofia Coppola in it's special Cannes Film Festival Guide. In an article called "Sofia Coppola: The Trials, Tears and Talent," Stephen Galloway allows us to spend some time with Sofia who has been missing from the film scene since the lackluster reviews of Marie Antoinette. Sofia will be debuting a new film at Cannes. Bling Ring is based on the true crime spree story that thrilled and shocked the California socialite scene in 2010. The article continues to talk about Sofia's creative process, including what her life is like when she is not filming, which is focused on her two daughters, touring with her husband, and writing new scripts. Sofia is in good company with this kind of multitasking schedule as she is one of a number of hard working women directors. Check out the slideshow below of 7 women directors we love!
