I think I love more the atmosphere than the movie itself.

As soon as we see the title it suggests that you are going into a depressing film and this certainly is one. With a mysterious, melancholic and sometimes haunting atmosphere Sofia Coppola was able to do a solid debut with her The Virgin Suicides.

This tells the story of five beautiful girls, full of life are forbidden to live their adolescence in a normal way by the restricted orders of their religious parents.

Is difficult to talk about this film without spoiling much and I don't wanna do it for the ones who haven't seen it yet. I will just say that freedom is one of the best things we can have in life. Living in cloistered is not easy or good for our mental health.

The performances are solid from all of the actors, it's visually beautiful and has a great the soundtrack.

Masterpiece, I love the atmosphere and the music by Air is stellar. Has a vibe similar to “Drive (2011)” IMHO
