Sofia Coppola is one of the world’s best living directors, and so whenever she makes a movie – regardless of what it’s about – it’s must-see viewing. The Academy Award-winning filmmaker (for her Lost In Translation screenplay) is back this summer with The Beguiled, an adaptation of the novel by Thomas Cullinan.
Set in Civil War era Virginia, it’s an atmospheric thriller about a small seminary for young women, led by headmistress Nicole Kidman, that must contend with the violent threat of a wounded Union Soldier played by Colin Farrell.
Co-starring Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning, Angourie Rice, and Oona Laurence, The Beguiled opens in select cities on June 23rd, and expands wider on June 30th, following its world premiere at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival in May.

The original 1971 version starring Clint Eastwood and directed by Don Siegel(Dirty Harry) is a must see in it’s own right. I still plan on seeing the new version by Sofia Coppola.
I still need to see that one, but I plan on doing so after this version.
