The Beguiled is a seductive drama thriller starring Academy Award® winner Nicole Kidman and Golden Globe® winner Colin Farrell.

Enter into the sheltered world of a southern girls boarding school during the American Civil War, where all is not as it seems.

Filled with jealousy, betrayal and sexual tension, this Southern Gothic tale is one of macabre revenge and desire. Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning star in the film by Oscar® winning writer and director Sofia Coppola.

The story unfolds as injured enemy solider John McBurney (Farrell) is found, wounded, and takes refuge in a girls’ boarding school, run by the protective Martha Farnsworth (Kidman).

Chaos ensues as this handsome man enters this sheltered school of girls and women, resulting in unhealthy competition between them involving luxurious gifts, delicious dinners and private meetings.

As they provide refuge and tend to his wounds, the house is taken over with sexual tension and dangerous rivalries, and taboos are broken in an unexpected turn of events. As the emotional temperature rises, so does the sense of foreboding towards this now unwelcome, intrusive man.

Coppola took out Cannes 2017 Film Festival’s Best Director for this enthralling adaptation of Thomas P. Cullinan’s volatile 1971 novel – making her the first woman to win in over 50 years and the second female director in the festival’s 71-year history.

The giveaway to win a DVD copy has ended.
