In this Sofia Coppola directed film, the Civil War sets the stage for a complex attempt to examine the relationships between men and women, their roles, stereotypes, and desires. Join me as I discuss The Beguiled, starring Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Kirsten Dunst, and Elle Fanning, and all its many layers that could have made for a truly beguiling movie. Interestingly, this film feels a bit like watching an episode of “The Bachelor” show set in 1864!
If you like period pieces, or strong female characters, than definitely watch this film. It’s an interesting approach to the female group dynamic, and human emotions that are ignited by jealousy and desire.
