Video Interview: Sofia Coppola, Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning on "The Beguiled"

This past May, Sofia Coppola made Cannes Film Festival history by becoming only the second woman to win the Best Director prize for "The Beguiled." The film is a gothic Civil War set potboiler based on the 1966 book by Thomas P. Cullinan and originally made into a film in 1971 by director Don Siegel and starring Clint Eastwood.

Film journalist Katherine Tulich sat down with writer/director Sofia Coppola and two of the film's stars, Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning, to talk about this modern day retelling with its distinctive feminist slant.
