The Nightingale

Dir. Jennifer Kent. Australia, 2018. 2h 16m. Starring Aisling Franciosi, Sam Claflin, Baykali Ganambarr, Damon Herriman, Harry Greenwood, Ewen Leslie, Charlie Shotwell.

Set in 1825, a young Irish convict chases a British officer through the rugged Tasmanian wilderness bent on revenge for the terrible act of violence he committed against her family. A tense and gruelling period thriller from the director of the critically-acclaimed psychological horror The Babadook (2014).

‘A brilliantly harrowing indictment of white male oppression set in British-ruled Australia circa 1825. If you thought Jennifer Kent pulled no punches in her terrifying supernatural debut The Babadook, brace yourself’ ★★★★★ Stephen Garrett, Time Out

‘Gruelling but intensely rewarding, it repays multiple viewings. A fearless, breathtaking masterpiece.’ ★★★★★ Elena Lazic, Little White Lies
