The Beguiled

This film is a remake of a 1971 Clint Eastwood movie. The acting is good, but for a movie that is only 1:34 long, it feels kinda dragging. The story also irks me. Set in Virginia during the Civil War, a young girl finds an injured Yankee soldier and brings him back to her all-girls boarding school, where his injuries are tended to. But along the way, most of the women, adult and not, make fools of themselves (listen to the audience laugh – this is not a comedy) as they let themselves be charmed by this guy. Really??? Really??? The story does redeem itself in the end, but overall, if you want to watch this, just temper your expectations.
