Editorial Reviews

Clint Eastwood and Geraldine Page star in this tense psychological drama of love and betrayal. During the Civil War a wounded Union soldier is sheltered by the headmistress and students of a girls' academy in the South. As his health returns his desire increases, but can he trust these enemy women not to turn him in? He takes his chances but soon realizes that his benefactress can't be trusted...with his love or with his life! His lustful ambition turns quickly against him and the story follows him through a series of nerve-shattering events, including realistic scenes that are among the boldest, most shocking ever witnessed on film. Directed by Don Siegel, with a sultry score by Lalo Schifrin, this bittersweet thriller of hidden passions is set in one of America's romantic eras.

    The Beguiled caught me off guard. We rented it knowing only that it took place during the Civil War, it was made during Eastwood's peak years, and that he had sideburns that looked out of place but really cool. I expected an okay movie that would be The Man With No Name kicks butt in the Civil War, but instead I was completely amazed. I'm glad I went into it knowing little about it, because I just got more and more impressed and into the movie as it went on.
    Eastwood plays a 'Yank' officer, Corporal John McBurney (or "Mac") who is wounded and taken in by some sort of boarding school for girls in a remote country location. The school is actually a Southern mansion that reminded me of the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland from the outside. The residents are all female and include a headmistress with a pretty sick secret in her past, a black 'servant' who turns out to be nobody's slave, and several teenage girls. Also, since all the men have been off at war for awhile, they are all pretty sexually frustrated. To keep them from turning him over to the south, where he will almost certainly die of his wounds in a miserable jail, Eastwood's character tries to charms all of them. With some of them, he knows how to play their weak points against them. This unfortunately works a little bit too well, because at least 3 of the women end up having the hots for him so bad that they end up in various stages of fooling around with him. Mac gets WAY more than he bargained for, with more tragic, ugly, and terrible results than you could imagine.

    An excellently realised film focusing on the mysterious, erotically charged tension between men and women, particularly a houseful of multigenerational women who have not enjoyed the company of a man for some time. Set in a wonderfully isolated girls-only boarding house in the deep civil-war-torn south filled with plenty of sordid, make that extra sordid, skeletons in those dank, musty closets!
    Geraldine page rules the film (and the exceptional ensemble cast) as the head mistress/owner/control queen (of ALL time-OKAY!) whose life unravels as one ugly secret peels away to reveal yet another more twisted detail. She tries in vain to control her brood of females, many of who have fallen for the very handsome and badly wounded soldier who they have rescued from the battle field...wonderfully played(to the hilt)by Clint Eastwood (at his sexiest). While in recovery,Clint's soldier works his manipulative charms on several of the comely young females which conflicts with the head mistress' master plan for him and that sets in motion a series of tension filled and very dangerous games of seduction, deception and plans going horribly wrong.
    Once the lies are discovered, the plot charges full steam ahead to a wonderfully stunning conclusion that will leave you silent. Fortunately, hollywood hasn't felt the need to refilm this extremely UNDERATED gothic psycho-chiller. A perfect film ,in many ways.

    The Beguiled is one of the most beautiful films I have ever seen,contributing to my early love of cinema,and sadly remaining underrated to this day.
    While it is hard to pigeonhole the film into one specific genre, be it a thriller or a psychological drama,it is one of the very few films that without the use of blood and gore,manages to be very disturbing and violent.A raw and primitive violence that is directed more at the viewer's mind and psyche.
    Don Siegel is one of the best American directors,who like Sam Peckinpah,understood the meaning of this violence and did not shy away from showing it without tantalizing the 'voyeur' in his audience.
    His collaboration with Clint Eastwood is one of the most successful in cinema..(Dirty Harry, Coogan's Bluff, Escape from Alcatraz, Two Mules for Sister Sarah)..And with the Beguiled he managed to direct an original film that had the best performances his star had to date,(a transitional role in Eastwood's career, in between the westerns of Leone, and the toughness of Harry Calahan.)
    The whole mood of the film has this creepy and sinsiter atmosphere that appears quite subtle on the surface,yet as your delve deeper,it slowly unleashes much darker and well hidden forces.
    It is the story of a wounded Yanky soldier(Clint Eastwood)evading capture in the south during the civil war,finds refuge in an all girl boarding school.The headmistress (the geart Geraldine Page)takes him in and provides him with a sanctuary and care that befits her Christian duties and sensibilities.Yet this stranger awakens many feelings in the house: curiosity,jealousy,sexual fantasies, up to the will and determination to murder.

    A complete bomb at the time of its release because audiences went expecting a typical Clint Eastwood actioner and instead got this eeire drama about the sexual mind games between a wounded Union Soldier and the "inmates" of an all-girls Southern school. Nearly thirty years later, we can appreciate the film's artistic qualities, the almost surreal direction, and the uniformly wonderful acting. And we can certainly admire Eastwood and legendary director Don Siegel for striking out in a new direction with high quality material.
