Virgin Suicides, The

Rated 3.0 Sofia Coppola’s adaptation of Jeffery Eugenides’ 1993 novel plays like a sweet, sad dream. The film begins as the youngest (Hanna Hall) of five attractive teen sisters in an upscale 1970s Michigan suburb kills herself. The film’s narrator (Giovanni Ribisi), a neighborhood boy infatuated with the girls even as an adult, explains the other sisters will soon follow and guides us through a whisper of a mystery propelled by raging hormones, repression, sex and the ache of puppy love. With Kirsten Dunst as the sibling coveted by the school’s most popular, pot-smoking jock (Josh Hartnett), and James Woods and Kathleen Turner as her overprotective parents.
