The Virgin Suicides is a movie that is not much talked about any more. The main reason for this is because it was made way back in 1999 and has long since passed its prime. However, that does not mean it is not a good movie. In fact, lots of older movies are better than the movies you see today. This is because they are a lot different and did not just rely on computer pictures to sell the movie. These movies had to have a story line to sell well and that is what this one has. Lots of movies that are based on books are never as good as the book itself. This, however, is not the case with The Virgin Suicides. I am not saying that the movie is better than the novel, I am however, saying that the movie is as good as the book. That is saying a lot for a movie that is turned into a book. Usually the books are able to tell a much more detailed story. The novels are a lot longer than the books and the movies have to be cut down. So lots of times they take out the details and just put in the action parts. This however, takes away from the story and what it is trying to get across. This is not the case with The Virgin Suicides. The movie has found a good way to get the details across in a way that makes it entertaining to watch on the big screen. That is hard to do,but that is what you need to do if you are going to turn a book into a well respected movie like this one.
