has anyone read the BOOK of the Virgin Suicides? and can u tell me how it compares to the movie?

the conclusion in the film i agree was very haunting, SPOILER!!!!!!!! what with the little flames and all.. how is it all in the book? .. (without major spoilers unless it's the same as the movie)

I've read it, but unfortunately can't remember how they did they ending, so am useless to you... I think they may have just reported briefly that they made a memorial (it's narrated by an indeterminate collective of the boys). I think the last sentence was great though. On of those ones where you put the book down and sit there for a little while in silence.

I do remember it being good, and having a much more guy-centred approach than the movie - so you get even fewer glimpses of the sisters - which made it even more ambiguous and poetic in my opnion.

I saw the trailer for Lost In Translation today; it looks really good. Not nearly as surreal or moody as the Virgin Suicides, but more quietly comedic. Bill Murray's performance looks fantastic. I think there was some good music in it, too, but the audio was only playing through the center channel (theater's fault), so I could barely hear anything other than dialogue.

Sofia's above that you guys.  Lost In Translation is shaping up to be one hell of a movie, according to links posted on this board...I have a feeling it might be one of the best movies this season.... :-D

I just saw a trailer for Lost in Translation before Swimming Pool, and it looks great.  I'm so glad Sofia Copploa is directing a feature again.  I've always heard good things about her even though I've never actually seen any of her work.  I've wanted to see Lick the Star for the longest time, but I'd have no clue where to look to find it.  Anyway, yes, just wanted to add that, and say it's good to see Bill Murray in another film, and the woman he's cast with, Anna Faris, looks like she'll give a good performance as well.  So one reason to shell out $5-$7 for Swimming Pool is this trailer.  The actual movie that follows the trailer isn't all that great, but it's not a complete disaster.

Wow, that does look really damn good. Man, those shots of the city and the pool are gorgeous!

Thanks Mac, I've been needing another movie to look forward to, it's sucked big time lately.

I just saw the trailer.
It looks very nice. The Jesus and Mary Chain kick ass!

Looks interesting. I'm not sure about Scarlett Johannson though. I haven't found her to be a very convincing actress in the past and her delivery of the lines in the trailer were pretty bad. I'll go see it for Murray and Giovanni, even though he only has a small role.
