Awful movie.

The problem with the virgin suicides is that it only uses one flawed emotional theme to make the entire movie and to get the attention of the audience. The characters are badly crafted, being a movie about suicide you would think that the characters would show signs of depression or mental illness, they don't. There are certain factors that supposedly cause the films tragedies, one of them being overly controlling and conservative parents, you might get the feeling that the point of the movie is to prove that bad parents are the main cause of suicide? But the movie does not prove that to be the case. It does not prove anything for that matter.

virgin suicides

Families can talk about what has and has not changed since the 1970's. Why the girls were such an endless source of fascination for the boys and about why the response of the community seemed so heartless to the boys? What could have led the girls to take their own lives and who, if anyone could have prevented it?

Disturbing, confusing

This is an alright movie. Worth watching in a sense, though it is very hard to keep up with. It is confusing & contains a lot of references & depictions of suicide. Somewhat disturbing. This is definitely not for younger kids, more because of its confusing plot line.
