Sofia Coppola’s forthcoming Civil War thriller The Beguiled has the chance to be a sleeper hit amidst the summer blockbusters. The film’s eerie new poster sets a tone that movie fans are longing for.
Stars Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, and Elle Fanning are featured on the poster, all striking poses that give off a dark, mysterious vibe.
The story is backed by the Civil War, taking place at a Southern girls’ boarding school where a group of sheltered young woman take in an injured enemy soldier (played by Collin Farrell). As the sole man of the house, sexual tensions begin to tighten as the ladies tend to their visitor’s wounds, prompting an unexpected rivalry amongst the man’s caregivers.
The Beguiled is set to premiere at the 70th Festival de Cannes before hitting limited theaters on June 23rd. An expansion will take place a week later.
