Adapted from Jeffrey Eugenides' novel set in 1970s American suburbia, Sofia Coppola’s unnerving and beguiling 1999 feature debut tells the story of the Lisbon sisters, five young women bound by the trappings of their strict Catholic parents.
In the wake of the youngest sister’s suicide, the remaining four struggle to deal with the tragedy as their parents tighten their grip and isolate them further from the community.
Four teenage boys watch the doomed sisters' fate unfold, and remain perpetually haunted by their memory.
