    The preview is a lie. Long and drawn out. What you think will happen, and what you wait over an hour to happen, never happens. Then the credits role.

    The story had zero depth and went absolutely nowhere. Kept waiting for something to happen and...nothing. Complete waste of time.

    This is absolutely HORRIBLE movie . For the life of me I don't understand how anyone could actually give this movie a good , or even fair review . Ohhhhhhh , Now I get it . Because of the Directors famous last name .....Coppola . Well, Let me be completely honest here..........Go watch paint dry !!! You'll have a better time , and might even learn something. Which is more than I can say about this move . Any " Good " review on this movie is a blatant lie to the moviegoers
  • Irritated enough...

    ...by the last third of this that I couldn't even qualify an 'it's OK' rating. While there are so many components to this that are spot on: the cast, the lighting, the photography and sound, there is a huge hole running straight through the middle of this production. Not having seen the original I am surpirsed at how undeveloped the relationships are here. I was never emotionally engaged in any of them... least of all the Corporal. The story happened hastily and suffers for it. Could have been so much more gripping.
  • Kirsten Dunst Shines

    “We can show 'em some really Southern hospitality.” - This gothic Civil War tale by Director Sophia Coppola is a dark n’ stormy masterpiece. Kirsten Dunst shines in this film, only confirming what an amazing and reliable actress she is. She’s become Sophia’s Muse and always delivers such beautiful and ethereal performances (the Virgin Suicides & Marie Antoinette) Dunst vulnerablly oppressed portrayal of Edwina is the best performances from a Female Actress this year. My Favorite film of 2017!

    The best part is the scenery and the dress - to get a feel for what it must have been like for a group of women living alone during the Civil War. The movie is 99% in the dark so I found it visually hard to watch. It's very slow moving which is fine if there is a payoff, which there isn't much. Not much dialogue or character development. And it just...ends. Mostly atmospheric scenery.
  • Gorgeous setting

  • The only good movie of Sofia is Lost in Translation

    Hey Sofia if you really want to do this kind of films, Please learn from the master Park Chan-wook. the movie is slow as Sofia's style, boring if I may say, and with a lack of propose or direction. Is once in a life time of 5 bored girls and horny soldier that got chopped otherwise come back to lost in translation style or somewhere. I want my $15 dollars back.
  • Not worth the money it took to make it........

    Boring from beginning to end. I kept waiting for it to get good and for something interesting to happen. The characters have no development and you are left wondering about their motivations. I want the hour and a half back it took me to watch this.
