The plot moves around a ridiculous ambient: Parent with closed minds trying to be a perfect family, make hard rules with their five daughters. But the decision of the daughters to died, is a mystery that their first lovers could not forget. A movie that shows us a case when the extremity could resolves in a total chaos.

Sweet and sad, with touches of black humor. The movie comes off as a melancholic induced dream state. Much like the young characters in the film, there is a strong sense of curiosity and longing here that everyone experiences with adolescence.

Cecilia Lisbon (Hanna R. Hall) attempts suicide. Trip Fontaine (Josh Hartnett) and Lux (Kirsten Dunst) get into a relationship. The score was impressive; direction was wonderful while the acting was good. Only questionable scenes were how the news reporter arrived on time while the girls protecting the tree and the depth of the suicides. The screenplay was efficient with a quote sums up the entire film Doctor – “What are you doing here, honey? You're not even old enough to know how bad life gets.” Not as brilliant as Heathers with regards to the topic of suicide nevertheless The Virgin Suicides showcases the sensitive topic with a touch of maturity in the view of teenage girls.

"The Virgin Suicides" by Yojimbo

Approaching the subject of teen suicide from a completely different direction from Heathers, Sofia Coppolla's film is a far more understated and thoughtful affair. Technically there is little to fault; the young cast are uniformly good, dealing with the awkwardness and pain of interaction with the opposite sex as teenagers (Ha! As if that ever goes away...) It also makes some subtle points about the exploitation of tragedy by the media and the resultant finger pointing and ineffectual "awareness raising" by society that results. My main problem lies in it's lack of examination of the character of the girls, their thoughts and feelings born from these events and their reaction to their over-protective mother's virtual imprisonment of them. This gives the story a very sterile and unaffectin...
