The Virgin Suicides

Sofia Coppola / US, 1999 / 97 min.

Sofia Coppola’s dreamy and subtly melancholic debut about five stunningly beautiful but tragic sisters, whose collective suicide remains a mystery. Kirsten Dunst plays a magnificent part. The film’s ethereal and enigmatic style is supported by a fine score by Air and completed with '70s hits. New 4K restoration.
