Synopsis


The Beguiled
In this Civil War drama, a deserter from the Union Army (Colin Farrell) seeks refuge at an all-female boarding school in Virginia, where the ladies compete for his affections while tending to his injuries. His presence at the school slowly poisons the relationships between the various women, who eventually turn on the soldier. Nicole Kidman, Elle Fanning, Kirsten Dunst, Oona Laurence, and Angourie Rice co-star. Sofia Coppola wrote and directed The Beguiled, which is based on a novel by Thomas Cullinan that was previously adapted into a 1971 film of the same name (with Clint Eastwood in the role played here by Farrell). ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

    Good "Remake"

    I never read the book, so I don't know which is more accurate, this new version or the original Clint Eastwood film. They both have their own strengths. Eastwood played the character a bit more sympathetic, though he was still manipulative. Colin Farrell plays him as more of a cad, but works well when his fate is revealed at the end.

    This Blu Ray remake of the original Beguiled by Sofia Coppola is a decent film but moves very slowly. It has a strong casts in Nicole Kidman and Kirsten Dunst and the costuming has good attention to detail. The tension seems toned down when compared with the original.

    The original movie was the worst of Clint Eastwood's long career. This one is NO BETTER! Saw this for free thanks to AARP. I sat there waiting for SOMETHING to happen and nothing did - at least for me. What a waste of talent. Save your money and spend it on something more satisfying...

    Let down

    I've been waiting for this movie to come out for purchase. With such big names I knew it would be a great movie. I was so let down. Very slow starting, middle and end. Now I've paid $22 for it and don't want to watch it again.

    Never thought this was gonna be a great movie? First only saw it because I like Elle fanning as a great actress. But it turned out was an amazing movie from the start. I just wish it was longer and showed more?

    Movie was beautifully shot and had great performances. However, I thought the screenplay could have called for more tension between the characters. Still a decent movie for the price I paid for it.

    I remember this film getting lots of acclaim in the theaters so I was excited to see it. It had great character development, but it felt like a let down at the ending.
