THE VIRGIN SUICIDES + Peach Schnapps
April 23 @ 6:00 pm
Each ticket comes with a mini-bottle of “Schuller’s Original Peach Schnapps”
“Peach Schnapps. Babes love it.” Trip Fontaine
“The tone of wistful regret and longing doesn’t preclude a good deal of gentle humor. It’s a restrained, subtly suggestive piece which disintegrates if you try to get a fix on it.” Time Out
“A disarmingly poetic – and specifically female – vision of adolescence that it belongs in a category of its own.” Seattle Times
“A surprisingly intricate struggle with absence, grief, and memory.” The New Yorker
In an ordinary suburban house, on a lovely tree-lined street, in the middle of 1970s America, lived the five beautiful, dreamy Lisbon sisters, whose doomed fates indelibly marked the neighborhood boys who to this day continue to obsess over them. A story of love and repression, fantasy and terror, sex and death, memory and longing. It is at its core a mystery story: a heart-rending investigation into the impenetrable, life-altering secrets of American adolescence.
Dir. Sofia Coppola. 107 min. 1999.
