The Virgin Suicides

Sophia Coppola's first feature. Enjoyed Lost in Translation and starring Kirsten Dunst so worth a look.

Take one part American Graffiti (naturally), one part Twin Peaks, one part Picnic at Hanging Rock, mix together and get a flawed movie with touches of brilliance.

Didn't quite sustain the evocative mystery angle. Too much was explained for that. Over ambitious but I'll but a copy for the cinematography.
