  3. Interesting to know that the Virgin Suicides and Lolita have some sort of connection. Btw, I love Sophia Coppola! Hope she's making more movies soon.

  4. Peggy Sue is one of my faves films from Coppola, Kathleen was really great in it :) And I didn't know that Chelsea Swain was Dominique's sister! The truth it's that now that I know it I can see the resemblance... they're both quite cute ;)
    Love the pic you've posted from TVS, Kirsten was so beautiful as Lux (L) I'm re-reading the novel right now, second time that I'm reading it, and I think Sofia did a great job adaptating it.

    kisses dear!

  5. This trivia made me knew more about this amazing movie, I really enjoyed this. And, great blog.
