Sofia Coppola is back with The Beguiled, starring Elle Fanning, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Colin Farrell and Angourie Rice. Adapted from the Thomas P. Cullinan novel A Painted Devil and the 1971 film starring Clint Eastwood, The Beguiled follows an injured Union soldier imprisoned in a Confederate girls’ boarding school. There, he “cons his way into each of the lonely women’s hearts, causing them to turn on each other, and eventually, on him.” There’s a new trailer for the film and frankly, it looks incredible. This ranks high on our must-see list. The Beguiled opens June 23. Watch the new trailer below.
