The Virgin Suicides

The Virgin Suicides 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) convinces Lux Lisbon (Kirsten Dunst) and her sister to go to the prom, the boys' romantic fantasies threaten to come true -- until they ae 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.'' Co-starring Scott Glen and Danny DeVito.
