Trailer Watch: The Beguiled
Director Sofia Coppola's latest film The Beguiled, one of Talk Film Society's Most Anticipated of 2017, is all but certain to make its world premiere in the spring at the Cannes Film Festival, but for now Focus Features has provided a teaser of the film which lays the foundation of its story.
Starring Colin Farrell, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning, Nicole Kidman, and Angourie Rice, the film is set during the American Civil War, following a wounded Union soldier (Farrell) imprisoned in a Confederate girls boarding school. One by one the soldier enchants each of his captors, causing them to eventually turn on each other. Based on the novel by Thomas Cullinan, previously adapted in 1971 by Don Siegel and starring Clint Eastwood and Geraldine Page.
The Beguiled opens in theatres on June 23rd, 2017.
