    “We can show 'em some really Southern hospitality.” - This gothic Civil War tale by Director Sophia Coppola is a dark n’ stormy masterpiece. Kirsten Dunst shines in this film, only confirming what an amazing and reliable actress she is. She’s become Sophia’s Muse and always delivers such beautiful and ethereal performances (the Virgin Suicides & Marie Antoinette) Dunst vulnerablly oppressed portrayal of Edwina is the best performances from a Female Actress this year. My Favorite film of 2017!

    The best part is the scenery and the dress - to get a feel for what it must have been like for a group of women living alone during the Civil War. The movie is 99% in the dark so I found it visually hard to watch. It's very slow moving which is fine if there is a payoff, which there isn't much. Not much dialogue or character development. And it just...ends. Mostly atmospheric scenery.
  • Gorgeous setting

    Hey Sofia if you really want to do this kind of films, Please learn from the master Park Chan-wook. the movie is slow as Sofia's style, boring if I may say, and with a lack of propose or direction. Is once in a life time of 5 bored girls and horny soldier that got chopped otherwise come back to lost in translation style or somewhere. I want my $15 dollars back.
  • Not worth the money it took to make it........

    Boring from beginning to end. I kept waiting for it to get good and for something interesting to happen. The characters have no development and you are left wondering about their motivations. I want the hour and a half back it took me to watch this.
  • There's so much going on here

    I think this movie may catch viewers off guard thinking it might be an arthouse costume drama. But, it's Sophia Coppola, so there's a lot more to it than that. What Cpl. Burney, John to some, is to these women and girls and how he tailors who he is to appeal to each in the way she wants to be appealed to is kind of fascinating. How each girl/woman is more than her reaction to him is what may be overlooked. How they are together should catch the viewers' attention. This is a "quiet" movie, so to enjoy it best, listen closely. And, less metaphorically, I thought the sound production was a cut above, too. Each scene is a splendor, but visuals always get the most credit ;).
  • Huge disappointment

    I equate this movie to a piece of cheese that has gone bad. You look at it and it looks OK but the closer you get it has a stench to it. After seeing the trailers, and being a fan of Sofia Coppola‘s other films, especially The Virgin Suicides, I was expecting much more from this film. It’s not necessarily bad, it’s just boring and gauzy and dreamy looking and an hour and a half of nothingness. I’m writing this right after I watch it, because I will never think about this movie again. It wasn’t completely awful, but it also wasn’t engaging and memorable.
