The five teenaged Lisbon sisters are all blonde, lovely, and isolated in their 70s suburban life. Mom (Turner) is a rigid, religious harridan while Dad (Woods) is a wimpy math teacher. After 13-year-old Cecilia (Hall) tries to off herself, her parents are encouraged to let the girls socialize and the story becomes the recollections of the narrator (Ribisi), one of the boys fascinated by the quintet. Much of the movie focuses on sexually provocative Lux (Dunst) and her hunky would-be beau, Trip (Hartnett). There's a floaty, listlessly romantic air to the whole production (Coppola's directorial debut), which is based on the novel by Jeffrey Eugenides.
