    Hard to many other debut features as superb as this haunting film by Sofia Coppola.

    Although the premise of 'The Virgin Suicides' is disturbing, the film itself is not, because it doesn't take itself too seriously despite the subject matter. However, I felt unsatisfied by the end, because I guess I was hoping for more context...a sensible explanation. But maybe that's the whole point of the film?

    Sofia Coppola directed this movie with some very beautiful shots really mesmerizing, the plot although a bit Hollywood it serves as a message of teenagehood that is true today as it was during the time of the movie and before.

    I rate this for being weird and unique but still entertaining whilst daring to inject humour into such a morbid topic. There's a bit of everything in this film. Whilst it's about a serious topic I can't take the film seriously and I'm not sure I'm even meant to. Either way, I enjoyed it whilst it lasted.

    I don't understand why so many gave this such a high rating. Not that it's a bad film, just not exceptional. Just a coming of age film witb a quirky twist. One thing for sure, if the girls were imprisoned like that today, child services would make a visit. What are the chances of an entire family, sans the mom and dad, comitting suicide? Hell, i was depressed just watching them cooked up all day, never mind living like that. Life is can get depressing enough, why subject yourself to something like this in a film. Meh ...

    This movie looks great and was a starmaker, but I didn't like it when it first came out and there's so much I dislike now. First: if the parents are so vanilla and bland, why did they name a daughter "Lux?" It sounds like they wanted boys to take a ride in their daughter. How did the parents not hear anyone running around in their house? This film is showy -- it looks great! The substance is really lacking: we spend a lot of time listening to the boys but none learning of their individual secrets. We never learn squat about the parents.

    Strange film. Like a teenage dream. My reading of it is that the parents were psychopaths and the girls too. Psychopaths are mostly happy when they kill. Which is somewhat what happened.
