What did you think then, and now? I saw it around 2003 just before I went into high school, and it had a profound impact on me. It's still one of my favorite movies, and, along with "Lost in Translation," one of only two Sofia Coppola movies that I think are actually worth a shit. I read Jeffrey Eugenides' book my freshman year of college, and it too ranks among my favorite novels—every page is immensely lyrical and atmospheric, and I think Sofia Coppola did a very good job of carrying that dreamlike haziness into the film version.
"The Virgin Suicides", released 20 years ago this past month

Loved it. This is the only Sofia Coppola move I like. It like a dream on film

Looking now, I've realized the trailer above was a teaser (I think), which is not nearly as good--this is the superior trailer I remember

Great movie, accomplishes one of the hardest things in that it creates a total world view and mood.

My favorite was slutty Lux

The only time I found Josh Hartnett sexy

I liked it too. Bought the great soundtrack at the late great J&R.

For some odd reason I never got around to seeing this. But I like the soundtrack (by Air) and Kirsten Dunst.

Why should i care about a bunch baby Karens who basically killed themselves out of boredom?

Knowing what we know about James Woods now, I’m creeped out about what might have happened on set.

I remember thinking Hartnett was sexy in the movie, but I just looked up the movie on IMDb and nearly mistook him for Clea DuVall.

I remember the hype when this movie came out. But I didn't watch it until I was in my 20s. I remember really liking it. I've always wanted to read the novel.

Did you care about the Starkishas in Precious, R8?

It was just on TCM and it really was well done. The boys were such good kids and the casting was perfect.
What creepy thing did James Wood do?

I think Sofia Coppola is almost as good as Malick. So disappointed to see that she’s drifted into the mommyblogger-type lane.

The curious thing is that Sofia decided she wanted to be a director after reading the novel

I love all Sofía Coppola’s movies. But this may be her best. Marie Antoinette and The Beguiled are also great.

I loved the sad dreamy quality of the whole thing; it's hard to imagine there was a time when James Wood was a credible actor. And Josh Hartnett - sex on a stick in that movie!

I always confuse this with Inventing the Abbotts. Josh Hartnett and Billy Crudup are both totally my type. Who cares about the sisters?

The novel, with its first person plural point of view, is haunting. The movie perfectly fine, but doesn’t come close to the book’s quality.

Admit it, the movie is a complete bore

I love this movie. I read the book first, and didn't think they would be able to transfer it to film, but it really worked. One of my favorite book adaptations.
