The Beguiled

Director: Sofia Coppola. Starring: Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning. USA 2017. 94 mins.

Academy Award-winner Sofia Coppola is one of those rare directors whose films feel like an event not to be missed. Her latest, a seductive drama with an all-star cast, is no different. A new adaptation of Thomas P. Cullinan’s Southern Gothic novel, A Painted Devil, the story unfolds at an all-girls boarding school in rural Virginia during the American Civil War. When the headmistress (Kidman) agrees to provide temporary refuge for a wounded Union soldier (Farrell), his sudden presence stirs up sexual tensions in the remote mansion. As each of the women falls for his charms, their tight-knit sisterhood buckles under the weight of deceit and jealousy, and taboos are broken in a dark and unexpected turn of events.
