ScreenTimes: The Beguiled with Sofia Coppola and Kirsten Dunst
Monday, June 19, 2017
Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to see a prerelease screening of Focus Features’ new movie “The Beguiled,” followed by a conversation between two longtime friends and collaborators — Academy Award–winning screenwriter, director and producer Sofia Coppola; and award–winning actor and director Kirsten Dunst. Coppola’s “The Beguiled” is an atmospheric thriller, starring Dunst, which 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. Join Coppola and Dunst after the film, as they riff on their creative process, behind–the–scenes stories, and what it’s been like to work together for almost 20 years.
ScreenTimes, moderated by veteran New York Times contributor Logan Hill, will celebrate and illuminate the most fascinating projects in film, television, and video.
