Description

    Sofia Coppola makes a stunning directorial debut with this "powerfully seductive" film that has become the most talked about movie of the year.
    In the mid-1970s, in a sleepy Michigan community, live the Lisbon sisters, five teenagers whose beauty has bewitched a group of neighbourhood boys. Isolated by their over-protective parents (James Woods and Kathleen Turner), they move like fleeting visions against the suburban landscape, luminous and unattainable.
    But when school hunk Trip Fontaine (Josh Hartnett) convinves Lux Lisbon (Kristen Dunst) and her sisters to go to the prom, the boys' romantic fantasies threaten to come true - until they are engulfed in a stunning chain of events that will change their lives forever.
    Based on the acclaimed novel by Jeffrey Eugenides, The Virgin Suicides is "a haunting mystery which captures with pinpoint accuracy both an era and an age".

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dreamy and elegant film...absorbing... Sofia Coppola (director Lost in Translation; actor The Godfather Part III) made a beautiful, elegant and well crafted directorial debut with "The Virgin Suicides". Essentially about a family of gorgeous flawless sisters (played by Kirsten Dunst, among others) who are raised by overly protective parents (played by James Woods and Kathleen Turner); the film explores with considerable beauty the effect of virginity, depression and sicidiality on this family of the Lisbon sisters who have been shielded from the world by their parents. A haunting soundtrack by Air, the film also stars Danny DeVito (Dumbo) and Josh Hartnett (Pearl Harbor). A beautiful, elegant and understated film overlooked at the US box-office and which demonstrates the promise that Sofia Coppola has as a director. This film is gorgeous, heart rendering and sad. All these emotions all at once.
