'Translation' Sweeps Indie Oscars

Sofia Coppola’s quirky travelogue “Lost in Translation” swept the Independent Spirit Awards Saturday, winning best feature, best direction and screenplay (both by Coppola), and best male lead, Bill Murray.

Charlize Theron – who, like Murray, is also up for an Oscar – was named best female lead for her portrayal of the real-life serial killer and prostitute Aileen Wournos in director Patty Jenkins’s “Monster,” which also was named best first feature.
