Doctor: What are you doing here, honey? You're not even old enough to know how bad life gets.

Cecilia: Obviously, Doctor, you've never been a 13-year-old girl.

It's been 15 years since Jeffrey Eugenides' The Virgin Suicides was adapted to screen by Sofia Coppola, but the enchanting effect of the Lisbon sisters still holds strong. The tale of five siblings, who soon become four after the youngest commits suicide by brutally impaling herself on a fence, is narrated thanks to the obsessive memories of neighborhood boys who watched the sisters from afar. Isolated from society by their super strict, conservative parents, the girls become objects of fascination and unfathomable mystery.

The Lisbon sisters's whimsical beauty is perhaps only outdone by Josh Hartnett's character, Trip Fontaine, and the cloud like wig which balances so... stylishly.

From Kirsten Dunst, the 'stone fox,' to the youngest sister, Cecilia, check out what the cast of the cult classic The Virgin Suicides are up to now, 15 years after they flew the nest...

“So much has been said about the girls over the years, but we have never found an answer. It didn’t matter in the end how old they had been, or that they were girls, but only that we had loved them, and that they hadn’t heard us calling, still do not hear us calling them, out of those rooms, where they went to be alone for all time, and where we will never find the pieces to put them back together.”
