What happens when a Civil War-set thriller meets a Revolutionary War-set musical? Find out in the video above, in which the young actors of The Beguiled perform Hamilton’s “The Schuyler Sisters” alongside their co-stars and the crew.
Emma Howard, who plays Emily in the new movie, shared the video in celebration of #Ham4All, the social media initiative supporting Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Immigrants, We Get the Job Done Coalition. Among those joining her in the video are Matilda alum and Tony recipient Oona Laurence, Angourie Rice, and Addison Riecke, as well as Oscar winner Nicole Kidman.
The #Ham4All challenge encourages fans (including some celebrities) to perform a number from the musical, post the video online, and challenge others to do so as well. The initiative encourages participants to donate to the Immigrants: We Get the Job Done Coalition, which provides legal services and resources to immigrants, refugees, and asylees.
Fans who donate will also get a shot at winning two VIP tickets to the Los Angeles premiere of the musical at the Pantages Theatre.
Written and directed by Sofia Coppola and based on the novel of the same name, The Beguiled stars Kidman as Martha Farnsworth, a seminary school owner in rural Virginia. When an injured Union soldier (Colin Farrell) gets taken in, tensions and jealousy run high between the women of the school, leading to dangerous rivalries.
The film opened in select cities June 23 and will be receive a wide release June 30.
