Sofia Coppola’s directorial debut is a haunting and poignant portrayal of troubled adolescence and loss of innocence. Set in suburban America in the mid-70’s, the beautiful and mysterious Lisbon sisters live a sheltered and isolated upbringing. Their doomed fates have left a lasting impression on the neighbourhood boys, who to this day continue to obsess over them. The film’s dreamlike aesthetic is emphasised by an original score composed by French electronic duo Air, striking a balance between sinister and blissful, much like the suburban neighbourhood in which they live.
