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.
“…a stone-cold revenge fantasy, laced with a potent cocktail of toxic comedy and pungent desire.”
"...The Beguiled is an exquisitely crafted drama of seduction, survival and sexual awakening..."
"Sofia Coppola has made a swift, gorgeous chamber thriller, an efficient and refreshingly straightforward film that crackles with wicked humor.”
