It follows the story of a wounded Union soldier (Colin Farrell), who is rescued by the women in an all-female boarding school. Soon jealousy and attraction begins to cause trouble in the school, with dramatic consequences. Watch the trailer below to get a sneak peek –
The novel has been adapted once previously in 1971, with Clint Eastwood starring as the soldier.
