Jennifer Kent follows up her terrifying debut The Babadook (2014) with a dark tale of revenge in colonial Australia. It follows Clare, a young Irish convict, as she tracks a British officer through the Tasmanian wilderness, intent on bloody and brutal retribution for the crimes that he and his men committed against her family. With astonishing, powerful performances from Ireland’s Aisling Franciosi as Clare, and newcomer Baykali Ganambarr as Aboriginal tracker Billy, The Nightingale is a tense, brooding thriller that will have you clutching at the arms of your seat.
