The Beguiled ★★★★

Packs a punch I definitely was not expecting from Miss Coppola. The use of light and shadows is so goddamn good it's almost infuriating, and the true artistry of the camera work helps to distract from the light plot and Nicole Kidman's woefully inconsistent accent. Not sure it needs to exist given the 1971 adaptation exists, but there is some truly haunting imagery in this that will stay with me for a while.
