Synopsis

The story unfolds in a small Michigan town in the 1970s, after a bizarre series of suicides in one family. The family concerned happens to be made up of five exquisitely beautiful sisters who are the object of fascination for the town's boys, and in the course of this intelligent adaptation of Jeffrey Eugenides's haunting novel we learn how - if not necessarily why, these tragedies happened.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
