The Virgin Suicides DVD Report

Print: Good - Sound: Good - Label: Pathe - Year: 1999 - Cover: Good - Format: 1.66:1 - Length: 1h33m/1h28m - Before: No - Again: No - Price: £1 - Rating: 5.5/10.

The Virgin Suicides is set in 1970s America, the Lisbons seem like an ordinary family; Ronald (James Woods) who teaches math at the local high school, Sara (Kathleen Turner) who has strong religious views, and 5 teenage daughters, ranging from 13 to 17; Cecilia (Hannah R Hall), Lux (Kirsten Dunst), Mary (AJ Cook), Cecilia (Hanna R Hall), Therese (Leslie Hayman) and Bonnie (Chelse Swain).

The Lisbon family are shattered when Cecilia falls into deep depression and attempts suicide, then shattered further when she does it again and succeeds. But after attending a school dance, Lux is seduced then abandoned. The Lisbons pull their daughters out of school, as an emotionally frayed Mother keeps close watch over them.

The Virgin Suicides is an odd movie, probably more a chic-flic than something I should watch, but I bought it because I have the soundtrack album by Air, which I find amazing! This movie tells you the outcome of the film right at the beginning, then shows you how they got there, very odd! Then again the soundtrack album also tells you the plot of the movie, so I suggest you play this and skip The Virgin Suicides totally! Its OK I suppose, but as I said, odd!

Here is the trailer...
