From acclaimed writer/director Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation) comes an atmospheric thriller that unfolds at a secluded girls' boarding school in Civil War-era Virginia. When a wounded Union soldier, Corporal McBurney (Colin Farrell), is found near the school, he's taken in by its headmistress, Miss Martha (Nicole Kidman). As the young women provide refuge and tend to his wounds, the house is taken over with sexual tension and dangerous rivalries when McBurney seduces several of the girls.

Sofia Coppola's Civil War drama is powerful, primal.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Beguiled is director Sofia Coppola's poetic remake of a 1971 Clint Eastwood movie based on the novel by Thomas Cullinan. It's a Civil War drama that tells the story of a wounded Union soldier who's taken in by all-girls school. Though there's no graphic nudity, viewers will see two sex scenes, one of which has a rough feel and includes thrusting. There's also some kissing, a suggestive sponge bath, and general sexual tension. Bloody wounds are shown, plus blood spatters, a gory broken leg, and a leg being amputated. A man screams in pain, rages with anger, and grabs a woman's hair. Guns are heard booming in the distance throughout the movie, and a character shoots at a chandelier, crashing it to the floor. A character is poisoned. Language is minimal; the word "bitches" is used once. The main male character gets staggering drunk, and there's some social drinking.
