The cast is headed by Hollywood stars Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Colin Farrell (In Bruges, Total Recall) and Elle Fanning (Maleficent, Neon Demon).

But, where does the movie take place? The Beguiled was filmed in Louisiana, around New Orleans, although the plot is set in Virginia.

Just in case you haven't watched the movie yet, we tried to keep this post spoiler-free as much as possible.

The Beguiled location
The main location of The Beguiled is the historical Madewood Plantation House in Bayou Lafourche, near Napoleonville.

Built in 1846, the mansion hosting the Farnsworth Seminary is a perfect example of the Greek Revival style.

The kitchen room
Also, it is possible to book a room in the property, as it works as a luxury guesthouse, so you can experience going back in time to the Old South.

The Beguiled Plantation house
Some rooms in the movie are from Madewood house, but some others like the music room and bedrooms were filmed at Coolidge House in New Orleans.

This is a large private property belonging to American actress Jennifer Coolidge.

The 2020 NBC series Council of Dads, set in Savannah, was also shot in an awesome classic plantation house.
