The Virgin Suicides

The Virgin Suicides ★★★★½

i think i’ll often come back to this film now and then, not necessarily because it’s a favourite but the influence it had on me when i was younger. 

i pictured myself as the sisters for a long time, like i was never really heard even though they had called, the signs were ever so clear, misunderstood, feeling like i am both too much and not enough, this mediocre paradox of a girl forever out of reach

to be alone for all time, alone in suicide.

trying to fathom my own self, something my parents were not capable of, venturing deep into my past understanding the things lost between my wide- eyed adolescence.

capturing girlhood in this dreamy lens, it’s how i imagined it would be exactly, perfectly fitting.
