What better example than a film directed by acclaimed writer/director, Sofia Coppola who took out the Best Director prize at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival for this remake of the 1971 drama of the same name, starring none other than Clint Eastwood. This makes Coppola the second female director (the 1st being Soviet filmmaker Yuliya Solntseva in 1961 for The Chronicle of Flaming Years) in the festival's 70 year history to claim this prize.
A feminist adaptation buzzing with seductive drama and rich cinematography, Nicole Kidman plays the headmistress of a secluded school for girls in 1864 Virginia. Their lifestyle is disrupted by the discovery of a wounded Union Army soldier. His presence bring with it broken taboos, sexual tension, dangerous rivalries and an unexpected turn of events.
