The Beguiled / Top 5 Sofia Coppola Scenes

Nearly 15 years after its release, "Lost in Translation" remains Sofia Coppola’s best-known and best-loved film. (She won a Best Screenplay Oscar for it in 2004.) But with the four films she's made since then ("Marie Antoinette," "Somewhere," "The Bling Ring" and now "The Beguiled") she's compiled one of the most distinctive filmographies of the 21st century. THE BEGUILED is a very Coppola remake of the 1971 Don Siegel/Clint Eastwood collaboration set during the Civil War at a Virginia girls' school. It stars Nicole Kidman, Elle Fanning, Colin Farrell and Coppola regular Kirsten Dunst and it won Coppola the Best Directing Prize at Cannes back in May. This week, Coppola skeptic Angelica Jade Bastien (Vulture) joins Josh for a review of the film along with their Top 5 Coppola Scenes.
