I have seen this before… (smile)

"is set at a Virginia girls' school in 1864 during the Civil War, The Miss Martha (Nicole Kidman) Farnsworth Seminary for Young Ladies, which has been sheltered from the outside world… that is until the day they discover a wounded Union soldier (Colin Farrell) and take it upon themselves to show him some real southern hospitality! While imprisoned in the Confederate girls' boarding school, the injured Union soldier cons his way into each of the lonely women's hearts, causing them to turn on each other, and eventually, on him."

I'll stick with Clint Eastwood's original version, I think,

Do the Yankees, like the Macedonians, have an Irish accent?

Of all the movies to re-make, Beguiled? Really?

Well… a huge amount of Union troops were Irish… (smile)

What kind of accent do you imagine that Macedonians had, if not Irish?

The accent thing in Alexander worked well. It served to illustrate the Macedonians were not Greeks and certainly not the same as the way the Greeks saw themselves.

Regarding this particular film, I have no idea why they wanted to do a remake. It appears just to have been updated for nudity and not much else.

There again I never liked the original so what do I know?
