"An exquisitely crafted drama of seduction, survival and sexual awakening in Civil-War era Virginia, with especially strong performances from Kirsten Dunst and Nicole Kidman. Coppola opts for controlled, gently simmering tension in this cheeky, poetically made parable: well dressed, well designed and well performed"
★★★★
- Dave Calhoun, Time Out

"A hilariously fraught feminist psychodrama, Sofia Coppola delivers a very enjoyable southern melodrama, adapted from Cullinan’s novel, telling the story with terrific gusto and insouciant wit. The Beguiled is a tremendously watchable movie, a drama-thriller with subtle touches of noir and black comedy"
★★★★
- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

"Straining at the seams with suppressed sexual passion, Colin Farrell squirms with delight under the female gaze in Sofia Coppola’s slice of feminist Southern Gothic. The Beguiled’s juicy plot and humid atmosphere make it undeniably worthwhile"
★★★★
- Donald Clarke, The Times

"Coppola prunes away everything outside her comfort zone, distilling the plot down to a slender, refined and witheringly funny morality tale. Nicole Kidman’s turn is deliciously subtle but with a lemony edge of camp, expressing the shifting chemistry within the school with consummate control and wit"
★★★★
- Robbie Collin, The Telegraph

The film follows an injured Union soldier who arrives at an all-female Southern boarding school during the Civil War. Soon, sexual tensions lead to dangerous rivalries as the women tend to his wounds and offer him shelter and companionship...
