A few weeks back, we got an enticing teaser for Sofia Coppola’s upcoming thriller, The Beguiled. And now we have a full-length trailer, which is pretty amazing.
Check it out:
During the Civil War, a girls’ school is disrupted by the arrival of a wounded soldier (Colin Farrell), who charms all the women and girls there, creating an atmosphere of jealousy and betrayal.
If this sort of thriller is your thing – and it most certainly is mine – then The Beguiled looks like the perfect movie. It’s also a remake of Don Siegel’s other 1971 film starring Clint Eastwood (the other, Dirty Harry, overshadowed it) and Geraldine Page.
This Colin Farrell renaissance also pushes forward. After The Lobster last year, the upcoming Killing of a Sacred Deer, and now this (and season 2 of True Detective, where he was great. I will fight you), maybe now people will start to realize Farrell is a low key great actor. The same can be said for Nicole Kidman, who is having a nice comeback after this year’s Big Little Lies.
Along with Farrell and Kidman, The Beguiled stars Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning. It will arrive in the peak of the summer season, June 30.
