The Beguiled is a Potent Shot of Southern Discomfort

Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled is a steadily simmering fever dream that boils over into a hothouse nightmare. It’s a remake of one of Clint Eastwood’s lesser known, but more interesting movies — his flopped at the box office. In 1971, audiences wanted Dirty Harry Clint and not Civil-War-soldier-confined-to-an-all-girl’s-school Clint.
