Few things seem as perfect as Sofia Coppola’s upcoming period drama, The Beguiled. I mean, Southern Gothic, Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Kirsten Dunst and of course Coppola herself. This is a combination of pure heavenly proportions.
The Beguiled unfolds in a girls’ school in the state of Virginia in 1864. As the Civil War rages, The Miss Martha Farnsworth Seminary for Young Ladies has been sheltered from the outside world— until the day a wounded Union soldier is discovered nearby and taken in.
The drama is based on Thomas Cullinan’s novel which was previously adapted into Don Siegel’s 1971 drama starring Clint Eastwood – one of the actor’s little seen career highlights. We’re sure Coppola will do wonders with the project – especially given the high quality trailer.
