From acclaimed writer/director Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation) comes an atmospheric thriller that unfolds at a secluded girls' boarding school in Civil War-era Virginia. When a wounded Union soldier, Corporal McBurney (Colin Farrell), is found near the school, he's taken in by its headmistress, Miss Martha (Nicole Kidman). As the young women provide refuge and tend to his wounds, the house is taken over with sexual tension and dangerous rivalries when McBurney seduces several of the girls. Taboos are broken and events take an unexpected turn in this gripping and haunting thriller also starring Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning.

This gothic Civil War tale by Director Sophia Coppola is a dark n’ stormy masterpiece. Kirsten Dunst shines in this film, only confirming what an amazing and reliable actress she is. She’s become Sophia’s Muse and always delivers such beautiful and ethereal performances (the Virgin Suicides & Marie Antoinette) This film is my favorite of 2017 as is Dunst vulnerably oppressed portrayal as Edwina. Honestly one of the best performances from a Female Actress this year.
It's the Civil War. These women and girls are cooped up behind iron bars locked away from the turmoil outside, yet are also prisoners because nothing ever happens here. Then danger in the form of a handsome, charming, Yankee man comes to them. He's wounded so he's safe enough to play with... or is he? He brings out every desire in these females for companionship, life, danger, and excitement. They feel a spark of life in them again and want it for themselves. Their choices bring out the worst in them and their visitor that they all pay for.
Yes, at times slow which is expected given the entire movie takes place in a house, but the story, acting, sets, props, costuming make it worth viewing.
The scenery is gorgeous, yet prompts you to think there is some underlying trouble in all that quiet. Sofia Coppola's direction is the real star here though. Stunning pans of nature and the house give way to the remarkable subtle glances here and deep gazes of lust there. Coppola utilizes her cast to bring this story to life. It does not drag and engages you with a brilliant sense of suspense. One of the best films of 2017 easily. I recommend you watch The Beguiled.
