USA | 97 min | R | 35mm | Dir. Sofia Coppola 

After the suicide death of their youngest sister, the surviving daughters of the Lisbon family descend into a deep melancholy and eventually become isolated socially and physically by their parents (Woods, Turner) within their small-town Michigan house. Their only contact with the outside world is a group of neighborhood boys who become obsessed with watching and attempting to communicate with the girls. (Metacritic)

TW: Suicide

"[Coppola's] instincts clearly tell her that film is not only a visual medium but also an emotional one, and she is eager to confront the pain, frustration and grief that simmer beneath the tranquil affluence of her enchanted suburb." - A.O. Scott
