Sofia Coppola’s seductive new thriller is based on the novel by Thomas Cullinan, which was previously adapted by Don Siegel for the 1971 Clint Eastwood film.
The story involves a wounded Union soldier (Colin Farrell) who is given shelter in a Confederate girls’ boarding school and becomes a source of fascination for the sexually repressed residents, including Nicole Kidman, Elle Fanning and Kirsten Dunst. Rendered in the soft focus, dreamy visuals that are her trademark, Coppola’s version brings a female perspective to this Southern gothic tale that crackles with tension, danger and desire.
