Sofia Coppola is back to taunt and tease audiences with a thriller that harkens back to her earlier works.
Set during the Civil War, The Beguiled follows a girls’ school run by Martha Farnsworth (Nicole Kidman), and the horrific events that follow after a wounded soldier (Colin Farrell) arrives and creates jealousy and betrayal amongst the women.
The first trailer was just released, and shows the madness that follows Farrell’s character after he crosses the women of the school.
Also starring Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning, the film looks to explore a number of interesting themes, and much like The Virgin Suicides, will force audiences to look a little closer.
The Beguiled will be released June 23 in the US and July 14 in the UK.
