Virgin Suicides

The library is pleased to offer a showing of a great film in English on one Saturday afternoon a month. The December showing will be of “Virgin Suicides”.

The Virgin Suicides is a 1999 American drama written and directed by Sofia Coppola. It is based on the 1993 best selling debut novel of the same name by American author Jeffrey Eugenides. The film tells of the brief lives of five teenage sisters in a middle class suburb near the outskirts of Detroit during the 1970s. After the youngest sister makes an initial attempt at suicide, her sisters are put under close scrutiny by their parents, eventually being put into near-confinement, which leads to increasingly depressive and isolated behaviour.

Screening begins at 15:00 sharp. This activity is free of charge for all library members. Please sign up at the front desk in advance if possible. A discussion in English will follow the film.
