An all-star cast unites for Sofia Coppola’s reimagining of The Beguiled, a film initially made famous by Clint Eastwood.
Sofia Coppola’s screenplay adaptation of Thomas Cullinan’s novel of the same name, will screen in competition at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.
Golden Globe Award winner Colin Farrell (Miami Vice), Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman (The Hours), Emmy Award nominee Kirsten Dunst (making her fourth movie with Ms. Coppola), and Critics’ Choice Award nominee Elle Fanning (making her second movie with Ms. Coppola) lead the cast of The Beguiled.
The Beguiled is an atmospheric thriller. 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.
The film also features Oona Laurence, Angourie Rice, Emma Howard and Addison Riecke, with Sofia Coppola writing and directing.
The Beguiled is released in the UK on 14th July.
