the virgin suicides, 1999
i feel like cecilia (2nd picture) is entitled to too little exposure in the movie. she is my favorite. basically she sets the tone for the rest of the story.
the movie itself is full of pretty visuals. i am not completely crazy over it. i think it is an ok adaptation of the book whose fans will find difficult to dislike. also: trip fountaine.
i talked about the book a while ago here. i admire that the book reads like a unisex/neutral one (if that makes sense), as it is about feminine suicides written by a male author. it is both near yet distant, specific and general, personal issues vs social issues. the result is just a gorgeous lace-swirled unsolved riddle..
