The Beguiled

Back in 1971 Clint Eastwood and his Dirty Harry director Don Siegel made a very creepy, extremely offbeat, Civil War-set Gothic drama called The Beguiled. Now Sofia Coppola (The Virgin Suicides, Lost in Translation) comes along to reinterpret it as the lurid, psychosexual thriller it always wanted to be. Colin Farrell stars as a Union soldier who gets wounded and ends up hiding out at a girls' school in Virginia, where the young women have been sheltered from the outside world. Soon, the man's presence wakes up the jealousies, rivalries and sexual tensions simmering among the school's head teacher (Nicole Kidman) and her young charges (including Elle Fanning and Kirsten Dunst). 93 minutes R.
