John McBurney (Farrell) is a wounded Union deserter in the US Civil War who winds up in a school for girls, where headmistress Martha (Kidman) is persuaded to show him kindness. Coppola’s remake of Don Siegel’s sweaty 1971 original plays like meticulously crafted high-camp melodrama; intermittently enjoyable, but rushed and flustered.
