One of the most curious Clint Eastwood films of the 1970s, The Beguiled sees the virile action star in a more vulnerable position as a wounded Union soldier stranded in a house full of Confederate boarding school girls. Sexual tension gradually gives way to shocking violence as the frustrated young women are stretched to the snapping point. Director Don Siegel considered it his personal favorite of his films; critic Judith Crist called it "a must for sadists and woman-haters." Sofia Coppola's remake, which played in competition at Cannes in May, gives audiences a chance to experience this slice of Southern Gothic from a female vantage point. The New Beverly screens them back-to-back, with Coppola expected for a Q&A.
