Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation) is bringing her dreamy sensibility to Thomas P. Cullinan's "A Painted Devil." Check out the new The Beguiled trailer. - From Slashfilm
Sofia Coppola‘s The Beguiled is a change of pace for the filmmaker.
McBurney is taken in and watched over at a Confederate girls’ boarding school led by Martha Farnsworth (Nicole Kidman), the school’s headmistress with a dark past.
Like Farnsworth, one of the school’s teachers, Edwina Dabney (Kirsten Dunst), and students, including Alicia (Elle Fanning), take an intense interest in the soldier.
There is a beauty to some of these shots, which we’ve come to expect from Coppola, whose shots tend to flow and transition from one another with astonishing grace.
[…] The main crux of the story is about the dynamics between a group of women all stuck together, and then also the power shifts between men and women.
