Nicole Kidman is enjoying a renaissance of sorts. Kidmanaissance? Anyway, the actress not only received rave reviews for her performance in Big Little Lies, but her latest appears to be another role that showcases a great performance. Her latest project pairs the Aussie actress with Sofia Coppola for The Beguiled. The film is not only based on a book, but is a remake as well. The original starred Clint Eastwood in the role Colin Farrell inhabits for the remake. One guy and a whole bunch of women and girls. What could possibly go wrong? **Reads plot summary of the novel and original movie** Holy s@*t.
