The Virgin Suicides (1999)
Tuesday 24th January 2023
With mesmeric cinematography from Edward Lachman, accompanied by a cult soundtrack from French duo Air, The Virgin Suicides and spellbinding performance from Kirsten Dunst, Sofia Coppola's stunning directorial debut, remains a coming-of-age classic.
In a quiet, conservative American town in the 1970s, Cecilia Lisbon, just 13, attempts suicide. She is one of five beautiful teenage sisters and this incident begins to unravel the lives of the entire family. The story is told from the point of view of the neighbourhood boys who are obsessed with these enigmatic sisters and draws its dark humour from the fabric of teenage life.
Little by little, the family begins to shut itself off from friends and neighbours and the girls are soon forbidden to go out. As the situation spirals downward, the boys plot to rescue the girls.
The Virgin Suicides is released on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K UHD 13th March 2023 from StudioCanal.
