— About «The Virgin Suicides» (1999)
When the beautiful Lisbon sisters commit suicide, a group of neighborhood boys become obsessed in their search for understanding. A story of love and repression, fantasy and terror, sex and death, memory and longing. It is at its core a mystery story: a heart-rending investigation into the impenetrable, life-altering secrets of American adolescence.
