“We could never understand why the girls cared so much about being mature, or why they felt compelled to compliment each other, but sometimes, after one of us had read a long portion of the diary out loud, we had to fight back the urge to hug one another or tell each other how pretty we were. We felt the imprisonment of being a girl, the way it made your mind active and dreamy, and how you ended up knowing which colors went together... We knew finally that the girls were really woman in diquise, that they understood love even death, and that our job was merely to create the noise that seemed to fascinate them.” - Jeffrey Eugenides, The Virgin Suicides .


I've had this idea in mind for a few months now and was excited to finally bring it to life with the help of Brian, his cousin Rachael, Theodore the Octopus, and the empty house next door to his uncle's.


I wanted to portray the insecurities and tribulations of teenage girls.. something I don't know anything about.
