The Nightingale (MA 15+)

The Nightingale movie poster

From award-winning Australian director, Jennifer Kent (Babadook).

A meditation on the consequences of violence and the price of seeking vengeance. Set in 1825, Clare, a young Irish convict woman, chases a British officer through the rugged Tasmanian wilderness, bent on revenge for a terrible act of violence he committed against her family. On the way she enlists the services of an Aboriginal tracker named Billy, who is also marked by trauma from his own violence-filled past.

 "a tour de force as an Australian woman determined to put a stake through the heart of toxic masculinity. You won't know what hit you." - ROLLING STONE

"a sweeping, brutal epic...Jennifer Kent continues to be a fiercely original, very brave filmmaker." - FILM THREAT

"a powerful and disturbing film" - CINEVUE

"attains a near-mythic grandeur over the course of its arduous, ravishing trek." - VARIETY

"a ferocious and unrelenting important Australian movie that is very much not going to be for everyone. " - FILMINK AUSTRALIA

"Packs a wallop" - THE WRAP
