The Coppola dynasty’s history resonates with that of Hollywood. First, were two brothers, Carmine and Anton, the sons of poor Italian immigrants that revealed a precocious talent for classical music. Carmine entered Juilliard in his teens while Anton took part to the Metropolitan Opera’s children choir at only eight years old. Following World War II, both directed prestigious orchestras on Broadway before Carmine decided to specialize in film soundtracks and Anton remained faithful to opera. Carmine and his wife Italia Pennino gave birth to August Floyd, the father of Nicolas Cage, Francis Ford, father of Gian-Carlo, Roman and Sofia, and Talia Rose, the mother of Jason Schwartzman. The Coppola family is a veritable clan, united and devoted to one another with a titular patriarchal figure -its Godfather - incarnated by Francis Ford Coppola, the majestic director of the Godfather franchise, Apocalypse Now or Dracula. When Anton Coppola does not collaborate with his nephew for the Godfather III’s soundtrack, his sister Talia incarnates Connie Corleone in the Godfather - when she’s not Rocky’s Adrian- while Jason Schwartzman has become Roman Coppola’s fetich actor. Francis Ford’s darling little princess, Sofia has now tantalized the attention of the media as a director with such films as Marie Antoinette or Lost in Translation while her niece Gia is gently following her path with a first remarked film, Palo Alto - another observation of American adolescence that evokes Sofia’s Virgin Suicides and Francis Ford’s The Outsiders. An artistic emulation fuels the Coppola tribe for whom family links are to place above all - ‘Picasso was an incredible artist but a miserable father and husband. I’d rather be a good guy’ once insisted Francis Ford Coppola.
