Watch this if you liked: “Marie Antoinette”

The Good, the Bad and the Innocent Ladies:

• A dark and suspenseful Southern Gothic horror film that explores the genre and feminine charm.

• Gorgeously shot, the movie often looks more like a painting than a film, and the use of sound and silence is impeccable.

• The story is well-paced and is contained in a single setting that is used to great effect.

• The movie might not appeal to all, like how a comedy would, but it is a unique entry as it masterfully turns a mundane story into something so interesting.

Trivia:

• For this film, Sofia Coppola won Best Director at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, marking the first time in 50 years a woman won the award, and only the second time overall.
