There is a sense of deja vu with this theme because just recently, in October, we had theme for period drama horrors. For that I picked three Mia Wasikowska’s movies. Now it’s period dramas again and I’m feeling like I have run out of Wasikowska movies so… you’re getting a random selection today. Well, almost random – all these period dramas are directed by women.
This review sort of contains spoilers.
For years, I have kept a certain distance from Sofia Coppola and her movies due to them being extremely boring for my taste. They take forever to build up, they have very many empty-scenes (a term that I will explain later), and the payoff is usually unsatisfying. The reason I don’t necessarily like Sofia Coppola’s movies is because I have a hard time actually watching them, which makes The Beguiled a special one. But, I must confess that since initially rating it, I have lowered my score from 4 to 3, because the more I think about The Beguiled, the more I’m disappointed in its direction and lack of intrigue.

Last week was quite something, saw two movies, watched an entire television season, sprained my ankle and finished two books. I like the addition of the sprained ankle to my health history, because I’m not much of a sporty person so I’ve never had any proper physical injuries. Now I can say I have a sprained ankle for the first time in my life, sadly it was not a sex injury, like someone suggested (you know who you are!). Plus, it turns out, sprained ankles are not fun! They hurt like hell, I almost blacked out from pain, and it’s impossible to walk – just what I needed to spice up my life!
