Sofia Coppola is back to direct her first film since 2013, this time a remake of The Beguiled (1971). Based on Thomas Cullinan’s book of the same name, the film follows the events after a girls’ boarding school in Virginia takes in an injured Union soldier in the last stages of the American Civil War and the betrayal and upset that unravel in the house after he begins an affair with a few of the young women. This remake, starring Elle Fanning, Nicole Kidman, and Colin Farrell, will differ from the original by showing the story from the perspective of the women.
