The Virgin Suicides

A young girl from a respected upper middle class family attempts to kill herself. Her parents are encouraged to allow her to have more social functions, but on the night of her party she tries again and this time manages to finish the job. Frightened by the degree of freedom her other daughters begin to exercise, the mother's response is to stifle them until finally they reach a point than none of them can bear.

Continuity mistake: The bottle of Peach Schnapps that Trip (Josh Hartnett) brings to the dance is alternately full and half empty during the scene. When Trip pulls it out, it is new and unopened. He hands it to Lux to drink, at which time it is nearly empty. He then drinks from it, and it is about half-full. He next hands it to the other couple, at which time the bottle is nearly full again.

Narrator: Given Lux's failure to make curfew everyone expected a crackdown, but few anticipated it would be so drastic. The girls were taken out of school, and Mrs. Lisbon shut the house in maximum-security isolation.
