No one shows us women in quite the same way Sofia Coppola does. Beginning in 1999, with her adaptation of
The Virgin Suicides, the writer-director has made a series of unique, deeply atmospheric films filled with characters
the likes of which none of us had ever seen before. “I wanted young women to have something that treated them
with respect and understanding,” Coppola says. And in her stories that speak to the meaningful moments of
adolescence and young adulthood—a first crush, a first kiss—all appointed and photographed in
accordance with her elegantly pop aesthetic, she has done just that.
