Sofia Coppola is returning to the big screen, and the official trailer for The Beguiled is a terrifying look at her take on the gothic Southern chiller. Nicole Kidman leads a pretty big ensemble of “vengeful bitches,” which also includes Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning, who end up tormenting Colin Farrell.
Farrell plays an injured Civil War soldier, found by some girls at a boarding school. Miss Martha (Kidman), the school’s headmistress, takes him in to tend to his wounds, but he disrupts her pure, innocent atmosphere with his deceitful philandering … so he’s got to go. Things get appropriately crazy and there’s a palpably tense atmosphere, so thick it could be cut with a knife. Anyway, it doesn’t look like things will end well for Farrell in this one.
