Storyline Heading
At a girls' school in Virginia during the Civil War, where the young women have been sheltered from the outside world, a wounded Union soldier is taken in. Soon, the house is taken over with sexual tension, rivalries, and an unexpected turn of events.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Western - This period drama is not quite the thriller that the trailers make it out to be, for it is more in line with the other, slower and more meditative work of writer/director Sofia Coppola. That said, this is probably her most mainstream accessible film. Fans of the top billed stars Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, and Elle Fanning will have plenty to enjoy here. Sexual content and general adult subject matter make the film strictly for adults, even with some younger girls in the cast.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good You can't write a thesis statement about what "The Beguiled" is about. It's not that kind of movie. But it's the kind of movie that lingers on in your head, just like the best fairy tales do.

USA Today Full Review
Average ... the drama amounts to an overly pretentious version of a sudsy made-for-TV movie, complete with bodice ripping. The Beguiled is slow to develop and never really cooks. As a period thriller, The Beguiled won't leave you hot but more likely bothered.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Very Good ...a Southern Gothic that simmers with violent undercurrents and dark, subversive wit. Laughs? You bet, though a few of them will stick in your throat. ...a sultry atmosphere of lacy beauty curdled by blood lust and the sound of battle off in the distance. But, oh, the war inside.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Above Average Sofia Coppola serves up a cautionary revenge tale told from multiple perspectives, and thus none at all. What results is her least audacious, and most conventionally respectable, work yet.
