Movie Pick: The Virgin Suicides

First, I want to say how excited I am that it's the start of Fashion Week! I feel like we just saw what's new for Spring and in comes Fall. These past few months really flew by with the holidays and all. But I can't wait to see what's in store for our next bought of cold weather and what each designer brings to the table. Are there any shows in particular that you're looking forward to? I'm curious to see how Jill Stuart is going to follow a triumphant Spring 2011, and also what's new at Cynthia Rowley and Diane von Furstenberg.

Now on to the movie...

Any fan of Sophia Coppola's work is familiar with The Virgin Suicides. It's a cult classic about a mysterious group of five sheltered sisters who all commit suicide (that's not a spoiler; just look at the title of the film...) Under the spell of these sisters, a few fascinated neighborhood boys try to piece together the known fragments of the girls' lives, but the enigmatic sisters' motives elude them. This is a magnificent and memorable film that will have you engulfed in this aesthetic and heartfelt story.










  

Some pieces inspired by the film:

I barely remember the plot of this movie, but I totally remember the ethereal style. Not sure what that says about my attention span but...at least I have good taste?

xo, Ashley

I've never seen this but have always wanted to. It looks so ethereal and I love Kirstin Dunst.

I love the haziness/dreaminess of this movie. It kind of captures the mood of the novel, but in a less depressing way :)
Cool post- I'm a new visitor here!
Cheers!
