Synopsis

Sofia Coppola writes and directs this western drama remake of the 1971 film inspired by Thomas Cullinan's book. Set during the American Civil War, the film follows John McBurney (Colin Farrell), a wounded Union soldier taken in and held by the all-female staff of a Confederate girls' boarding school. While there, McBurney cunningly plays the women off against each other, working on their sexual frustrations and biding his time until he can attempt an escape. The cast also includes Elle Fanning, Kirsten Dunst and Nicole Kidman.
