It’s almost time, ladies and gentlemen. Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled” is one of the biggest indie releases of the summer, and it finally arrives in select theaters this Friday.

“It’s always very comfortable and everyone is so kind and everyone wants to be there because they want to be there,” Dunst explains. “She really puts together good energies of people and cast members so her vision naturally comes to life.”

“The Beguiled” is set at a Southern boarding school for girls. When a wounded Union solider is brought in to the school to be nursed back to health, the dynamics of the group is thrown into disarray.
