Synopsis:

Sofia Coppola’s seductive adaptation of Thomas P. Cullinan’s novel, A Painted Devil, unfolds at an all-girls boarding school in rural Virginia during the American Civil War. When the headmistress (Kidman) agrees to shelter a wounded Union soldier (Farrell), his sudden presence stirs up sexual tensions in the remote mansion. As each of the women falls for his charms, their tight-knit sisterhood buckles under the weight of deceit and jealousy.

Critical reaction:
  • It is a tremendously watchable movie, a drama-thriller with subtle touches of noir and black comedy ★★★★

    Peter Bradshaw, THE GUARDIAN

  • An exquisitely crafted drama of seduction, survival and sexual awakening ★★★★
