However, when a young student stumbles upon Corporal John McBurney, a wounded Union deserter on the verge of death, the already frail balance of the mansion’s system will be disrupted, as the hesitant headmistress decides to take him while he heals from his injury.
The film’s heroes are portrayed by Colin Farrell (Corporal McBurney), Nicole Kidman (Miss Martha), Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning, Oona Laurence, Angourie Rice, and Addison Riecke.
