Oh Sofia, you had me at hello. I mean, has there been a more misunderstood auteur in American cinema than Sofia Coppola? Ever since she got the critical acclaim for "Lost in Translation" her career has become th kind of perplexing mix of films, but watch "Marie Antoinette" and its colorful, eye-popping visuals and tell me that isn't the work of a confident and brilliant filmmaker.
"The Beguiled" is a remake of that highly entertaining Clint Eastwood film from the 1970s. This "remake" looks like it's only loosely based on the original. Timely, feminist issues are sure to be tackled. I'm looking at the summer movie slate at the moment and this seems to be right at the top of my must-see list.
