A new adaptation of Thomas Cullinan’s novel of the same name as opposed to a remake of the ’71 Clint Eastwood vehicle, The Beguiled is a mesmerising drama from Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation, The Bling Ring) for which she won Best Director at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.
In the American Civil War, an injured Union soldier is taken in and nursed by the staff and pupils of an all-girl school. As he recovers, the man takes advantage of the situation, threatening to incur his hosts’ wrath.
