“I thought it was interesting to see these women who were left behind, they’d been raised to be companions to men…and there were no men around. Everything’s polite and lovely, but then there’s darkness underneath.” – Coppola on tweaking the original Beguiled’s point of view – from McBurney’s perspective to perspective of the women and girls who were living in a mostly empty house during wartime.
