The Beguiled

A huge favourite at Cannes where it won the Best Director award, Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning star and in this atmospheric thriller from acclaimed writer/director Sofia Coppola. Based on the novel of the same name by Thomas P. Cullinan,  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.

One of Coppola's best films to date, a heightened, darkly comic, sexually tense drama that cleverly subverts expectations to show what happens when a man gets caught in the crosshairs of desire.
