The lives of an eclectic group of boys who live in an affluent American suburb in the 1970s are changed forever by their obsession with five beautiful sisters. The story, told through the recollections of the now grown-up neighbourhood boys, unfolds in a series of stolen moments, interviews and journal entries. But this is no sentimental tale of the loss of innocence. The film takes on a darker edge with the death of the youngest sister and the effect this has on the family. Virgin Suicides is a subtle, humorous, refreshing look at tragedy and the complexities of growing up. Adapted from Jeffrey Eugenides's best-selling novel, this is an impressive directorial debut by fast-rising star Sofia Coppola.
