The tone of wistful regret and longing doesn't preclude a good deal of gentle humour. It's a restrained, subtly suggestive piece which disintegrates if you try to get a fix on it.

More than most recent movies about suburban adolescence... this catches both the triviality and the grandeur of youth, its prosaic details and its mythopoetic flights.

Coppola's direction engagingly avoids the coming-of-age cliches and the film boasts an excellent performance from Kirsten Dunst.

Coppola has the courage to play it in a minor key... She is content with the air of mystery and loss that hangs in the air like bitter poignancy.
