Coppola The flavor of the day

  Coppola Press Conference for The  Beguiled, which was not very beguiling -- in fact it sucked.  Glossy high budget scraggly story about a wounded soldier taken in by a house fill of femmes, with solid gold cast (Kidman, Farrel, Durst and Fanning) which helps viewers overlook some of the contrivances of the script as the pic falls apart in the second part and becomes an unintentional black comedy instead of the romantic drama it started out as.  Set in a handsome southern ...

It is almost hard to keep track of the Holly...
