A new trailer has dropped for The Beguiled, the Southern Gothic thriller from director/screenwriter Sofia Coppola (The Virgin Suicides, Lost In Translation).

Set in a rigid girl’s boarding school in the Confederacy, the film ostensibly begins as the Civil War-era answer to Jane Eyre. 

Then, Colin Farrell turns up to the school as a wounded Union soldier in need of aid, seduces and betrays Kirsten Dunst’s character, and then ignites the bloodthirsty rage of the headmistress, played by a vengeful Nicole Kidman.

Sex and revenge make for great bedfellows.

Focus Features offered the following synopsis:

The Beguiled is an atmospheric thriller from acclaimed writer/director Sofia Coppola. The story unfolds during the Civil War, at a Southern girls’ boarding school. Its sheltered young women take in an injured enemy soldier. As they provide refuge and tend to his wounds, the house is taken over with sexual tension and dangerous rivalries, and taboos are broken in an unexpected turn of events.

The film is based on the Thomas Cullinan novel of the same name, which was later made into a 1971 film starring Clint Eastwood.

The Beguiled hits theaters on June 30.
