Set in 1864 during the American Civil War in the sun-dappled state of Virginia, a wounded Union soldier (Colin Farrell) is given shelter within an all-female boarding school. His allure soon awakens sexual feelings in Marta (Nicole Kidman), Edwina (Kirsten Dunst) and Alicia (Elle Fanning). Placing the seven women of the boarding house and their potent desires at it centre, The Beguiled builds to a deadly conclusion. With vivid and invested performances, Coppola has crafted a sumptuously provoking film.
