Audience Reviews for The Beguiled

    At first glance, its easy to see why both Siegel and Eastwood were attracted to the material but the final product is quite unique in both of their filmographys. It's a melodrama and also a sexual thriller but one that's ultimately focused on fantasy/memory. I can see why it bombed, by the bleak ending the movie has alienated just about every potential mainstream audience member.

    Simply a wonderful take on the man-alone-in-a-harem theme, Clint plays a wounded Union soldier incapacitated in a Confederate seminary for young ladies. He's outstanding as the silver tongued cad who will say anything to bed a woman, woman who are desperate for the company of men in any case. Especially good is the decision to highlight the different approaches the ladies take to reach the same goal. Just a fun time at the movies.

    Little known Don Siegal classic. Eastwood plays a wounded Casanova who manipulates and seduces an all girls school. Must see.

    Wow Clint Eastwood took full advantage. Women and Clinteastwood in his youth. Sorrounded from teenagers to well lady`s? And he had them all. It is actually a very interesting Drama, very unusuall for the Movie with Clint Eastwood which I have seen. <center>LEARN THE MEANING OF SCORNED WOMAN!</CENTER>
