Sofia Coppola returns in the directorial chair with The Beguiled, a remake of Don Siegel’s 1971 movie starring Clint Eastwood and Geraldine Page. The drama was recently selected to compete for the Palme d’Or in the main competition section at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Ahead of its world premiere, Focus Features has released the official trailer.
Based on the 1966 novel by Thomas Cullinan ‘A Painted Devil’, The Beguiled is set during the Civil War at a girls’ boarding school. After an injured soldier (Colin Farrell) is taken in by the sheltered women, they help him recover. Swindling his way into each of the lonely women’s hearts, the house is taken over with sexual tension and dangerous rivalries, causing them to turn on each other, and eventually on him.
The Beguiled stars Nicole Kidman, Kristen Dunst, Elle Fanning and Colin Farrell amongst others. The film is all set to hit the theatres this June.
