THE BEGUILED (2017)

Janet's TAKE: #TheBeguiled is a sensual, well-acted Civil War tale. C+

Director Sofia Coppola beautifully filmed this
remake of a Clint Eastwood movie with more of a woman's point of view. Nice performances from Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning, Oona Laurence and Colin Farrell.
