Elle Fanning as Alicia

The Beguiled marks Elle Fanning’s fifth film for Focus Features, following Tod Williams’ The Door in the Floor, opposite Jeff Bridges, Kim Basinger, and Jon Foster; Terry George’s Reservation Road, with Joaquin Phoenix and Jennifer Connelly; Anthony Stacchi and Graham Annable’s Academy Award-nominated The Boxtrolls, made by animation studio LAIKA; and Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere, which won the Golden Lion Award for Best Picture at the 2010 Venice International Film Festival. For her performance in the latter movie, Ms. Fanning received a Critics’ Choice Award nomination.

She was a Critics’ Choice and British Independent Film Award nominee for her performance in Sally Potter’s Ginger & Rosa, with Alice Englert. She won the Best Actress award at the 2014 Karlovy Vary International Film Festival for her performance in Jeff Preiss’ Low Down; in the autobiographical story she portrayed real-life writer and memoirist Amy Albany, opposite John Hawkes as Amy’s father, celebrated jazz pianist Joe Albany.

Ms. Fanning began her acting career at the age of two, starring opposite Sean Penn in Jessie Nelson’s I Am Sam as the younger version of the character played by her sister Dakota Fanning. Her first lead role was as the title character of Daniel Barnz’s independent feature Phoebe in Wonderland, in which she starred opposite Felicity Huffman, Patricia Clarkson, and Bill Pullman.

Her other films include Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Academy Award-nominated Babel, opposite Academy Award nominee Adriana Barraza; Cameron Crowe’s We Bought a Zoo; J. J. Abrams’ Super 8; Francis Ford Coppola’s Twixt; David Fincher’s multi-Oscar-winning The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, portraying the younger incarnation of Cate Blanchett’s character, opposite Brad Pitt; the blockbuster fantasy Maleficent, starring alongside Angelina Jolie and directed by Robert Stromberg; Jake Paltrow’s Young Ones; Nicolas Winding Refn’s The  Neon Demon; Mike Mills’ 20th Century Women; Ben Affleck’s Live by Night; Jay Roach’s Trumbo, opposite Academy Award nominee Bryan Cranston; and Gaby Dellal’s 3 Generations (a.k.a. About Ray), alongside Naomi Watts and Susan Sarandon.

Ms. Fanning will soon be seen starring for director John Cameron Mitchell in How to Talk to Girls at Parties, adapted from the Neil Gaiman short story of the same name, with Nicole Kidman of The Beguiled; in Shawn Christensen’s Sidney Hall, a world premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival; and in the title role of Haifaa Al-Mansour’s Mary Shelley, as the iconic author.
