The Civil War rages.
Teachers Martha (Kidman) and Edwina (Dunst) shelter their boarding school girls from the Civil War.
But when they take in a wounded enemy soldier (Farrell), providing refuge and tending to his wounds an air of sexual tension builds and dangerous rivalries ensue after an unexpected turn of events.
With her distinctive slow burning style, Coppola (Lost In Translation) adapts Thomas Cullinan’s 1966 novel into a darkly entertaining drama brimming with wonderfully nuanced performances.
Here is a link to the Review by The Guardian , which places the 2017 film alongside the 1966 novel and the 1971 Don Siegel / Clint Eastwood take on the tale.
