The Beguiled is an atmospheric thriller from acclaimed writer/director Sofia Coppola. The story unfolds during the Civil War, at a Southern girls’ boarding school. Its sheltered young women take in an injured enemy soldier. As they provide refuge and tend to his wounds, the house is taken over with sexual tension and dangerous rivalries, and taboos are broken in an unexpected turn of events. “Modest in scale yet rousing in Southern Gothic psychodrama, Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled” creates levels of excitement that bigger, longer, louder blockbusters can’t match.” —Colin Colvert, Minneapolis Star Tribune.
