Dir: Sofia Coppola, US, 2017, 94 mins
Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst

A torrid gothic melodrama set during the American Civil War, when a wounded soldier finds shelter in a girls’ school, where his male presence provokes tensions between the schoolteacher and a precocious pupil. A new take on Thomas P. Cullinan’s 1966 novel, shifting the perspective from the central soldier to that of the women who care for him.
