Virgin Suicides

Based on the bestseller by Jeffrey Eugenides, this is a confident debut for first time director Sofia Coppola (Francis Ford Coppola's daughter).

The boys of suburban Michigan never did get over the Lisbon girls back in the mid seventies. Cecilia, thirteen years old was the first to go, slitting her wrists in the bathtub on her first attempt.

It's not long before the whole town is fascinated and struggling to know why.

Cecilia, Lux, Bonnie, Mary and Therese are beautiful sisters, that's for sure. Their parents (James Woods and Kathleen Turner) are keen to protect their darlings with unintended but predictabe results. Tragedy awaits.

A sold out house last night, so if you want to see this one better book soon. Bound to get a commercial release though.
