The Beguiled is Sofia Coppola’s newest film. It will star Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Kirsten Dunst, and Elle Fanning. The film revolves a injured Union soldier, played by Colin Farrell. He is brought to a Confederate boarding school where Nicole Kidman is the headmistress. Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning will play girls that attend the boarding school. They tend to his wounds and then, it would seem, to his other needs. In this Southern Gothic it seems that lust and deception are the key themes. I’m sure that seeing Kidman wash Farrell will be worth the price of admission.This is a remake of the 1971 film of the same name, starring Clint Eastwood and Geraldine Paige.
Kidman and Farrell can be seen in Yorgos Lanthimos’s next film The Killing of a Sacred Deer. Kidman can also be see with Fanning in John Cameron Mitchell’s next film How to Talk to Girls at Parties.
