Inforgraphic: The Coppola family, inetrconnected

Wednesday, February 6, 2019

Map and Pop Culture enthusiast, and big fan of the Coppolas, Dylan Narqvist, takes us through the prominent family's work in film, in his graphic The #Coppola Family: An Interconnected #Cinema History.

Dylan offers some more info on the Coppolas, after sharing his infographic on Reddit.
The members of the family are the following :
- Francis Ford Coppola (used as a reference);
- Eleanor, his wife;
- Carmine and Italia Coppola, his parents;
- Talia Coppola (Talia Shire), his sister;
- Sofia, Roman and Gian-Carlo Coppola, his children;
- Gian-Carla Coppola (Gia Coppola), his granddaughter;
- Marc, Christopher and Nicolas (Nicolas Cage) Coppola, his nephews on the brother side;
- Jason Schwartzman and Robert Coppola Schwartzman, his nephews on the sister side.

Only the movies where at least 2 of them are involved are shown, which explained why some Coppola masterpieces like Lost in Translation are not displayed here, sadly.

In case it's not as obvious as I thought :
- A full Circle means the person directed the movie;
- Outer Rings mean acting inside the movie (even not credited small parts);
- Dotted Outer Rings are other actions (producing, music, etc.), always specified.
