The casting and setting are top-notch. Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning and Oona Laurence all stand out - and Colin Farrell is as well as the wounded Union soldier who finds himself recuperating at an all-girls school. Kidman is the headmistress, Dunst is the sheltered one, Fanning the forward on and Laurence the tomboy. The film builds in intensity, though I honestly was expecting a bit more heat - but for the performances alone is worth the watch.
