SOFIA’S COPPOLA EROTIC THRILLER: THE BEGUILED

Young women and sun are once again at the center of a Sofia Coppola film. With The Beguiled, the director of Lost in Translation brings the grand screen of the Grand Théâtre Lumière of the Cannes Festival a story to the female who has the flavor of her The garden of suicide virgins , Reversing its psychological aspects. Kristen Dunst, Nicole Kidman, Elle Fanning, Colin Farrell are the protagonists of a sort of erotic thriller: Farrell is a wounded Northwest soldier who finds hospitality, despite the different flag, at a female college in the South during the US Secession War. His arrival awakens the interest of all: Director Kidman, Teacher Dunst (the actress was already in the cast of the Garden of Suicide Virgins), and female students: from the physical attraction of Fanning to the curiosity of the smallest.


The sexual tension of the largest and the resulting rivalry to get the attentions of the soldier culminates in an accident with disastrous consequences. Farrell, who until then seems to move among the women who are not too determined on the flattery to whom to surrender, finds himself in a monster’s nest. Remake of the film The Good Night of Soldier Jonathan (1971) directed by Don Siegel (in turn taken from the Thomas Painted Devil’s novel by Thomas P. Cullinan), if Colin Farrel fails to match the ambiguity of Clint Eastwood, the female characters are here wrapped in an apparent mildness that hides the terrible cruelty.

  • Being 23, I see the world in a different way- in love with fashion and culture from a young age. I was born in a multicultural family in Italy, that promotes the love for beauty in every field, from the food to the fine arts. This encouraged me to cultivate my hobbies, my passions and not to be afraid of the unknown. My motto is “The future you see is the future you get. “ Chasing my dreams has always been a constant in my life. This played a big part of me moving to NYC. I can only hope to become the next Giovanna Battaglia one day. During my free time, I explore wines, tacos, and my love for avocados.
