Watch the Thrilling First Teaser for Sofia Coppola's New Period Film, 'The Beguiled'

Starring Elle Fanning, Kirsten Dunst and Nicole Kidman.

Following her 2013 movie The Bling Ring starring Emma Watson, cult-favorite director Sofia Coppola now finally unveils her upcoming film The Beguiled via a teaser trailer.

Based on Thomas Cullinan’s 1966 novel of the same name, the period film centers around a group of female characters at a women’s boarding school in 1864 Virginia. Starring Nicole Kidman as the headmistress, Kirsten Dunst as teacher Edwina, and Elle Fanning as student Alicia, the movie explores the idea of jealousy and seduction as a wounded soldier (Colin Farrell) makes an unexpected stay at the school.

“The main crux of the story is about the dynamics between a group of women all stuck together, and then also the power shifts between men and women,” Coppola tells Entertainment Weekly. “So for me, it’s very universal, but it’s in this exotic setting of the Southern gentility.”

The Beguiled is set to hit theaters on June 23. In the meantime, sneak a peek at the film by watching the video above.
