‘The Beguiled’ acts up old-fashioned allures

( CNN) “The Beguiled” has a throwback feel that goes beyond its debt to the creepy-crawly 1971 film starring Clint Eastwood. Writer-director Sofia Coppola has produced a small-scale movie that exalts old-fashioned movie-making calibers, providing a refreshingly understated alternative to a sea of summertime blockbusters.

Adapted from Thomas Cullinan’s novel, the Southern-fried plot is a model of simplicity, with the action transpiring almost completely within the confines of a single dwell. It’s 1864 in Virginia, where the occupants of a small girlfriends seminary are struggling their mode through the waning stages of the Civil War.

One of the students stumbles across a Union soldier, Corporal John McBurney( Farrell ), who has been seriously wounded. After some conversation, the headmistress Miss Martha( Kidman) and her individual employees, Edwina( Dunst ), “ve decided to” take him in, with his male proximity and manipulative charms fetching a feeling of lurking unrest and furtive crave into this otherwise utterly proper abode.
