Yes! This is the remake of THAT Clint Eastwood starrer, with a gothic twist
A remake of the 1971 movie that goes by the same name, The Beguiled is a stirring dark romance that takes place in a large Southern manor which also houses a school for young ladies.
The Beguiled is set in the Civil War era. This will be an entirely different genre for Coppola. Earlier she has made thoughtful films like Lost in Translation, Marie Antoinette, Virgin Suicides. Not to mention The Bling Ring.
The Beguiled stars Nicole Kidman as the stern headmistress, Kirsten Dunst as a naïve teacher, Colin Farrell as a wounded soldier and Elle Fanning as a troubled student.
The story follows an injured soldier who is taken in by the headmistress and her students. As they tend to him, his presence takes a toll on all the women.
