Movie Review: Sofia Coppola's The Beguiled (2017) starring Nicole Kidman

The Beguiled
Director: Sofia Coppola
Screenwriter: Sofia Coppola
Cast: Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning, Colin Farrell
Distributor: Focus Features
Rated R | 94 Minutes
Release Date: June 23, 2017

Sofia Coppola‘s first short film, 1998’s Lick the Star, follows a clique of teenage girls led by Chloe, who is obsessed with V.C. Andrews’ novel, Flowers in the Attic. Chloe orchestrates a plan with her girl gang to “weaken” the boys they don’t like at their school by poisoning their lunches with arsenic. The 14-minute black and white 16mm short film shows early signs of Coppola’s fascination with the themes of isolation and identity, sexual awakening, and the trauma of adolescence.

Since then, Coppola has explored these ideas in the 18th, 20th, and 21st centuries with Marie Antoinette, The Virgin Suicides, Lost in Translation, Somewhere, and The Bling Ring. Now, the writer-director journeys to the 19th century with The Beguiled, a remake of the 1971 film of the same name, based on the 1966 Southern Gothic novel, A Painted Devil, by Thomas P. Cullinan.

A Very Murray Christmas

We’re in the middle of the Halloween season and many of us (myself included) are waist-deep in horror flicks right now, but Netflix wants to start getting everyone in the Christmas spirit even earlier than usual with the first teaser trailer for A Very Murray Christmas. At a quick 30 seconds in length, this is acceptable. Plus, Bill Murray.

The special stars Murray with many guest appearances, including George Clooney, Chris Rock, Miley Cyrus, Amy Poehler, Jason Schwartzman, Michael Cera, Maya Rudolph, Rashida Jones, Paul Shaffer, and Phoenix. It comes from Academy Award winning Lost in Translation and The Virgin Suicides director Sofia Coppola.

Sofia Coppola Exits ‘The Little Mermaid’

Sofia Coppola

Last year it was announced that Sofia Coppola was on board to direct a live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid over at Universal. Since then, news on the production of the film has been slow going, to a point where many had forgotten about the project. Well now comes word that Coppola is dropping out due to “creative differences” and “casting issues.”

Both Deadline cited the creative differences, while Variety says there was a disagreement with casting. According to them, the Lost In Translation director wanted Maya Thurman Hawke, daughter of Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, to play the role of Ariel. This choice did not sit well with Universal and Working Title. Joe Wright (Pan, Anna Karenina) was actually on the shortlist of possible directors, but he is currently in talks to direct The Lifeboat, which is another project over at Focus Features (Universal’s indie company) and Working Title.

Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid

Much time has passed and and Wright is no longer attached, but now a new director has stepped in. It’s being reported that Sofia Coppola, writer and director of Lost in Translation (which she won a Best Original Screenplay Oscar for), will now direct the movie.

The Bling Ring PosterThe Bling Ring
Director: Sofia Coppola
Screenwriter: Sofia Coppola
Cast: Emma Watson, Taissa Farmiga, Erin Daniels, Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Paris Hilton, Leslie Mann
American Zoetrope | A24
Rated R | 98 Minutes
Release Date: June 21, 2013

Live Fast, Die Young,
Bad Girls Do It Well

Written and directed by Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation), The Bling Ring stars Emma Watson as a member of a gang of fame-obsessed L.A. teenagers who begin burglarizing the homes of the rich and famous.

The movie opens with a nighttime break-in, as kids scale a security gate and infiltrate a well-secured property in the Hollywood Hills. They snatch up thousands in exotic clothing, jewelry, and cash.

As the film jumps forward to their arrest and then flashes back to tell their story (via media interviews), Coppola reveals that this is Orlando Bloom’s house. Based on a Vanity Fair article by Nancy Jo Sales, The Bling Ring is inspired by a 2008–2009 spree of L.A. robberies where high-schoolers from Calabasas, California — Rebecca (Katie Chang), Marc (Israel Broussard), Nicki (Watson), Sam (Taissa Farmiga), and Chloe (Claire Julien) — use the Internet to track celebrities’ whereabouts and target their homes for theft.

Party Boy From ‘Jackass’ & Stephen Dorff To Star In Sofia Coppola’s ‘Somewhere’

Pontius

That…that may just be the oddest title I’ve ever written.

Odd or not, though, the title shines true. It’s being reported that Chris Pontius, star of MTV’s Jackass as the ever-popular Party Boy, has been cast alongside Stephen Dorff (Blade, Deuces Wild) in Sofia Coppola‘s (Marie Antoinette, Lost in Translation) new film, Somewhere.

Pontius was cast in the role of Sammy, who is the best friend to Dorff’s character. The movie is about Dorff, a “bad-boy” actor who lives in West Hollywood and gets a reality check when his eleven year old daughter (played by Elle Fanning, sister of Dakota) shows up. This causes him to completely re-examine his life and how he goes about it.

Pontius wouldn’t strike you as the acting type exactly, as he always comes off as quiet and a little goofy on Jackass, possibly due to a stiff drink or two…or maybe something else. He has, however, done a little acting here and there, playing an Irish henchman in McG’s Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle; playing Jesus in TV: The Movie; and appearing in a film called What We Do Is Secret.
