At a girls’ school in Virginia during the Civil War, where the young women have been sheltered from the outside world, a wounded Union soldier is taken in. Soon, the house is taken over with sexual tension, rivalries, and an unexpected turn of events. In this Civil War drama, an injured Union soldier (Colin Farrell) seeks refuge at an all-female boarding school in the South, but his presence there soon poisons the relationships between the various women. Nicole Kidman, Elle Fanning, Kirsten Dunst, Oona Laurence, and Angourie Rice co-star. Sofia Coppola wrote and directed this remake of the 1971 film of the same name, which starred Clint Eastwood in the lead role.
