Hannah Strong Presents… The Virgin Suicides 4K Restoration (15)

A group of sisters lay in the grass wearing school uniform

A lively and fascinating presentation on the impact and legacy of Sofia Coppola’s gorgeous feature debut, followed by a glorious 4K restoration screening.

Sofia Coppola’s dreamy 1970s Detroit drama follows a group of teenage boys who become obsessed with five enigmatic sisters who are sheltered by their strict, religious parents. Starring Kirsten Dunst, Kathleen Turner, Josh Hartnett and James Woods. With music by French electronic duo Air

Hannah Strong (author of Sofia Coppola: Forever Young) will present on the cultural significance and legacy of The Virgin Suicides, particularly in relation to teenage girls and coming-of-age films in contemporary culture.

For over 20 years, Coppola's film has connected with young women and girls, taking cues from the work of Sylvia Plath and Emily Dickinson; at once a haunting, perceptive period piece about 1970s suburbia and an acute portrait of teenage melancholy.
