Title: The Virgin Suicides
Year: 1999
Whose In It?: Kirsten Dunst, James Woods, Kathleen Turner
What The Heck Is It?: Sofia Coppola’s debut venture into directing sees her take the helm of a dark satire featuring the Lisbon family. The family matriarch (Turner) is a woman of extraordinary faith, and the head of the house (Woods) is a teacher. All seems normal for the Lisbon’s and their five daughters. That is until the youngest Cecilia attempts to kill herself. It is this moment that sets the remainder of the film in motion.
