To Die For

Edition 1995
106' - 1995 - Crime, Drama, Comedy - Dialogue: English
Director: Gus Van Sant Composer: Danny Elfman With: Nicole Kidman, Matt Dillon, Joaquin Phoenix
Suzanne Stone is a small town girl with a dream - to become a famous TV personality - a dream that becomes a nightmare when ambition turns into obsession. Disillusioned with her husband Larry, she immerses herself in the persuit of her career and manages to talk her way into a job at the local TV station. She decides to produce a documentary about kids and enlists the help of three teenagers who seem to have little hope for the future: Jimmy, Russell and Lydia. Together they form a powerful and dangerous bond which threatens to blow the lid off their seemingly idyllic suburban life forever.
