The Virgin Suicides

United States

In a quiet American neighborhood, 13-year-old Cecilia Lisbon attempts suicide. This tragedy shakes up the whole family, which changes its way of life. Cecilia and her four sisters find themselves increasingly subjected to their mother’s possessive authority, until they can no longer leave the house. Four intrigued boys begin to watch them day and night.


Adapted from the novel The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides, Sofia Coppola’s first feature film, which quickly became a cult favorite, fascinates with its singular vision, hazy aesthetics and depiction of a silenced feminine interiority.
