Well, this is intriguing. I’m not very familiar with the original version of THE BEGUILED, but I do know it’s one of the most interesting roles Clint Eastwood has ever done. Plus, it was directed by the legendary Don Siegel! But now that this new trailer has dropped for Sofia Coppola’s all-star update, I’m intrigued to check out both!
First up, here’s the new version which is in select theaters June 23rd, and then expands wider on June 30th!
Hey, I like Colin Farrell! And I like the rest of this cast too. I want to know what they did to him!
Here’s a look at the original, for the curious.
“The Beguiled” is an atmospheric thriller from acclaimed writer/director Sofia Coppola. The story unfolds during the Civil War, at a Southern girls’ boarding school. Its sheltered young women take in an injured enemy soldier. As they provide refuge and tend to his wounds, the house is taken over with sexual tension and dangerous rivalries, and taboos are broken in an unexpected turn of events.
