    The evening also saw a tribute to Sofia Coppola. For the Hollywood Reporter, Ashley Lee talks with Coppola about The Beguiled, “crafting the female gaze and dipping into new mediums.” And IndieWire’s Eric Kohn talks with her as well: “It’s funny, because my dad and George Lucas were both into shooting digitally years ago, but my brother and I love film so much. And they’re so over it.”
