The Los Angeles Review of Books recently published an essay, "Burn Book: On “Priscilla” and Sofia Coppola’s White Girls" by Lori Marso, the Doris Zemurray Stone Professor of Modern Literary and Historical Studies.

Considering the fact that Coppola's films always feature beautiful, suffering white girls, Marso asks: "Can the white girl aesthetic be pried open? To move beyond it, must we burn it?"
