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.

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 …
