Movie Info

Audience Reviews for The Beguiled

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.

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.

LEARN THE MEANING OF SCORNED WOMAN!

This powerful drama centering around the effect which the arrival of a wounded civil war soldier has on a house full of women is probably Don Siegel's finest achievement, and is yet another example of Eastwood's willingness to break new ground and tackle new genres. It is also, perhaps, the finest acting performance of his career. His presence in the house releases not only deeply repressed sexual urges in the women who are helping him to recover from his wounds, but a sexually competitive frenzy which becomes ever more dangerous and frightening.

Certainly the strangest association between Eastwood and Siegel, but also one of their best. A morbidly perverse cautionary tale, narrated with the pulse of a master. Its southern ghotic surroundings are as macabre as tantalizing.
