Movie The Beguiled (2017) description:
1864 year. The patriarchal state of Virginia is engulfed in the war, the advancing Yankees crowd the valiant southerners. The almost empty female guesthouse is stoically experiencing military deprivation. The hostel was taken away by the family, the servants fled, and Miss Martha Farnsworth’s school leaves only five pupils, a young Morrow teacher and the headmistress herself. The life of the inhabitants of the institution is deprived of joys, it is heavy and unsettling, but an unexpected circumstance changes the established way of life.
Collecting mushrooms, a twelve-year-old Amy finds an enemy soldier – a wounded corporal who hid in the forest. Pitying the poor fellow suffering from the wounds of John McBurney is not handed over to the Confederate detachment, but is harbored in a boarding house. Compassionate southerners carefully nurse the northerner, and soon the unwanted guest gets better. The recovering corporal takes care of the savior, and they accept John’s compliments at face value. In a pious boarding house, which the war spared, real passions begin to boil.
