The Beguiled ★★★★

Sofia Coppola drops the viewer into a lush world with a foggy pastel texture and implicit seduction.

Back in those days’ you could fall in love in a day. Yet when the corporal announces his love to another character my theatre burst out laughing. I sincerely believed that this was sweet and among the wooing strategies of the day.

The turning point in the movie happens a little fast and the intentions behind each character isn’t clear. I had trouble buying into the way people were acting at the end.

The cinematography is absolutely stunning and worth the ticket price alone.
