The Beguiled (2017) Review

Sofia's second best film behind Lost in Translation.
Fueled by outstanding performances The Beguiled is atmospheric, tension filled, and gorgeous. It's also moody, claustrophobic, and dramatic. I could go on and on. This movie was shot on film and used mostly natural lighting including candle-light, which added so much to the mood. This film is a dazzling technical achievement. It's truly a wonder to look at. Sofia directs the living hell out of this movie!
Performance-wise everyone brings their A-Game. We are not worthy of Kirsten Dunst and Nicole Kidman. Elle Fanning brings a ton of flare. Colin Farrell is charming and mysterious. Everyone watch out for Oona Laurence; she's a movie star in the making. I can't get over the performances. It's very difficult to pick a standout because everyone is so incredible. This is the best performance driven movie I have seen in quite sometime.
I love period pieces and melodramas so much. There's no doubt that The Beguiled is one of the best.

Rating: 4.5/5
