Jane Love was a normal girl, in a normal house, with normal parents as so it may seems. She is tall and curvaceous, her body is the true definition of the hour glass frame.

As far as Sofia Coppola’s reason to shoot this film was to show that being a teenage girl or a girl coming up of age that suicide is what goes through one’s mind. So I fell as if she shot this film to bring awareness of what is actually going on in a girls mind at this age. As for Jane before she killed herself she carefully crafted and well written masterpiece explaining to her parents why she did it. This note says “Hi, mom and dad I know what you are thinking at this moment why would I do this? I had such a bright future ahead of me what have I done. Well I come to tell you I’ve been calling out for help but no one answer. Until one day a butterfly told me to join her and fly away and the only way I can do that was to
