I am a fan of the "Clint Eastwood version" of this movie. I get that Sophia Coppola wanted to do this from the women's viewpoint, but the imperfections of characters seemed more balanced to me in the previous version. Beautiful to watch, though.

This beautifully shot film tells the story of a wounded Union soldier at the end of the Civil War who is rescued by the women of an isolated girl's school.

A total waste of time. This movie is too slow-paced that I almost fell asleep. The script and the brilliant cast including Nichole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning and Colin Farrell etc. has been totally wasted. 0 points out of 100.

After watching the trailer, I thought this film would be more suspenseful, but it's actually quite slow and doesn't build up to much. The characters are subdued and the challenge they are faced with doesn't turn out to be that great at all.

Extremely slow,goes nowhere with the acting.Nicole Kidman was half dead,Colin Farrell has more talent in his little finger then he displayed here.Horrible remake Clint Eastwood so much better.Even Elle Fanning as young as she is,wasted her talent. Di not recommend to even a 4th grader.

What was the point in making this movie? The original Clint Eastwood version was better and most of the interior shot angles in this movie just copied the Eastwood shots!

What a waste of a remake, first version with Clint Eastwood, was better than this. Don't waste your time on this rehash.

I thought The Beguiled was just ok. But I wasn’t really drawn in. It seems to me since it takes place during the civil was there should have been paint peeling on the house, shabby chic dresses (not brand new, clean and pressed), and dirty fingernails. I thought it was more a loony bin than a Gothic Southern mansion. And the surgery seemed easy and uncomplicated. How did Nicole know how to do that?

Headline: Human stumbles into zombies trapped in dark mansion. It does not end well.

Awful remake. The acting doesn't hold a candle to the first version. Speaking of candles, this film could use a lot more of them. Granted, it's a dark story, but Coppola takes that literally! Most of the time, you can hardly see anyone's face.

I see many people are still waiting to see this. Don't waste your time! Get the original with Clint Eastwood, also available from SDPL.
