Sofia Coppola says the word “reboot” is a dirty word in her family, but that didn’t matter when she chose to offer a re-imagining of The Beguiled. In light of the recent call for gender equality in cinema, Coppola saw this as the perfect opportunity to retell The Beguiled with more suspense and greater exploration of the male/female dynamic.
