Based on Thomas P. Cullinan’s Southern Gothic novel, this Civil War-set romance — which was previously adapted for the screen in 1971 by Don Siegel — follows a Yankee soldier who’s rescued by a young student at The Miss Martha Farnsworth Seminary for Young Ladies in Virginia circa 1864.
Kirsten Dunst, Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, and Elle Fanning lead a stellar cast that also includes Oona Laurence, Emma Howard, Angourie Rice, and Addison Riecke. In anticipation, Fanning posted a behind-the-scenes photo from the set on Halloween via her own Instagram account:
As The Playlist now reports, the film is set to have a limited release on June 23rd, 2017 before expanding on June 30th, 2017. This could mean a possible premiere at Cannes Film Festival, where Coppola has a long history of debuting her films, specifically 2006’s Marie Antoinette and 2013’s The Bling Ring.
To paraphrase The Who, “Got a feeling ’17 is gonna be a good year.”
