We’re all over “The Beguiled” because if you take Sofia Coppola, have her direct a gothic drama, and line up a helluva cast to make it with, our ticket is sold. Perhaps even two times over. And some new images from the movie are here.
Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning assemble for this film which unfolds in a girls’ school in the state of Virginia in 1864 during the Civil War. Sheltered from the outside world, The Miss Martha Farnsworth Seminary for Young Ladies is shaken up when a wounded (and very handsome) Union soldier is discovered nearby and taken in. Things get a bit twisted from there.
“The Beguiled” opens on June 30th and I can only imagine it’ll swing through Cannes first. Check out some new images from the film below.
