Two Coppolas…

…and one Letterman, 22 years apart.

Francis Ford Coppola promoting One from the Heart:

Sofia Coppola promoting Lost in Translation:

As a father of three kids, two daughters and a son, I am curious, maybe a little frightened by the realities of my influence, intended and unintended, upon them. I am fascinated by the relationship of Francis and Sofia Coppola. There is something really great there. I realize that their relationship is mostly unknown by me and everyone else. But the public image, and what we can infer, suggests that they have a good relationship, that Francis has been a good father, and that Sofia has been willing to be influenced and guided by her father while also forging her own, unique life.

Finally, I love this image:
