Movies and Tea #19 – The Virgin Suicides

Season 3 is here and kicking off our season long re-evaluation of Sofia Coppola’s filmography we  look at her 1999 debut film “The Virgin Suicides” as she builds upon her first short “Lick The Star” as a group of boys attempt to solve the mystery behind the Lisben sisters from the effect they had on thier lives through to the girls taking thier own.

We not only look at the film and question who Coppola intended the film for but also establish the key themes of her work aswell as how she was able to stand out in her family’s film making dynasty.

    Welcome to the third season of Movies and Tea. This season, the director in our spotlight is Sofia Coppola. Its a change in gear for us as we move away from the horror, action and thriller elements into something more dramatic and indie and in the hands of a female director.
    Kicking off is her debut feature film The Virgin Suicides starring a few stars that have become fairly familiar faces in today’s films and TV.
