Sofia Coppola & Her Schoolgirl Sweetie

Sofia Coppola and her daughter Romy headed home from school in New York’s Soho neighborhood last Thursday (October 31).

The 6-year-old had on black and white clothes and carried an orange bag – fitting on Halloween day. Cosima, 3, wasn’t seen with them.

The Bling Ring director explained in an interview this summer why she decided to make movies for teens.

She said, “You know, I loved John Hughes’s movies, and I connected to those movies. But a lot of the movies that were made for teenagers were really, um, dorky and unsophisticated. And I feel like kids are more sophisticated and thoughtful than the [movie] studios give them credit for. I remember them worrying about The Virgin Suicides, like, girls are going to see it and they’ll kill themselves. They didn’t understand that teenagers are…it’s a time when you’re just focused on thinking about things, you’re not distracted by your career, family, you know. It’s a thoughtful time.”
