The Beguiled Review
The Beguiled, based on the book “A Painted Devil” by author Thomas P. Cullinan, was previously made into a movie by director Don Siegel with star Clint Eastwood back in 1971 — and the big difference with Sofia Coppola’s version is that it tells the story predominantly from the perspective of its primarily female ensemble. Set in Virginia during the middle of the American Civil War, the film centers on a seminary for young girls, which has been kept as a residence for the school’s headmistress (Nicole Kidman), teacher (Kirsten Dunst) and students (Elle Fanning, Angourie Rice, Oona Laurence, Emma Howard, and Addison Riecke) as the fighting continues.
