Sofia Coppola has proven to be a strong writer and director in Hollywood. Sofia Coppola by Raph PH is licensed under CC BY 2.0 DEED.

Sofia Coppola is the daughter of Francis Ford Coppola, who directed the Godfather movies, but she has earned her own reputation as an outstanding writer and director many times through her own films. 

She first stepped foot into Hollywood as a teenager when she starred in The Godfather Part III, directed by her father. After previously appearing in the original Godfather movie and The Outsiders as a child, this was her first serious acting role. While critics deemed her performance not very strong, the role seemed to have taught her a few things about the filmmaking process.

Coppola tends to focus on girlhood and womanhood in many of her films. Throughout her writing and directing career, she has won an Academy Award, two Golden Globes, and many awards from film critic associations. 

Coppola certainly has an outstanding filmography, but here are three films that particularly stand out.
