NO MAN’S LAND
Sofia Coppola’s latest period project is THE BEGUILED, a remake of Clint Eastwood’s Civil War drama. Nicole Kidman, Elle Fanning and Kirsten Dunst star in this film about a girls’ boarding school in the South that has been isolated from the outside world until the arrival of a wounded Union Army soldier (played by Colin Farrell) stirs up a tempest of sexual tension and rivalries. In Eastwood’s version the story is told through the man’s perspective. For her adaptation, Coppola tells the tale from a female POV.
