The Virgin Suicides

Buy Tickets


Double Feature with MANNY AND LO (7:30)

(1999) dir Sofia Coppola w/Kirsten Dunst, Kathleen Turner, James Woods, Josh Hartnett, Scott Glenn, Michael Paré [97 min; 35mm]
With this debut feature, Sofia Coppola announced her singular vision, which explores the aesthetics of femininity while illuminating the interior lives of young women. A faithful adaptation of Jeffrey Eugenides’s popular first novel, THE VIRGIN SUICIDES conjures the ineffable melancholy of teenage longing and ennui in its story of the suicides of the five Lisbon sisters, stifled by the rules of their overprotective religious parents – as told through the collective memory of a group of boys who yearn to understand what happened. – The Criterion Collection

“Sofia Coppola’s ‘The Virgin Suicides’ is such a disarmingly poetic – and specifically female – vision of adolescence that it belongs in a category of its own.” – Moir MacDonald, Seattle Times

“It’s hard to remember a film that mixes disparate, delicate ingredients with the subtlety and virtuosity of Sofia Coppola’s brilliant The Virgin Suicides.” – Jonathan Foreman, New York Post
