“MYTHIC AND GRIPPING. A HISTORICAL REVENGE TALE OF SHATTERING BEAUTY AND HARD EARNED GRACE.” – GUY LODGE, VARIETY

From Jennifer Kent, the director of The Babadook, comes The Nightingale – a meditation on the consequences of violence and the price of seeking vengeance.

Set in 1825, Clare (Aisling Franciosi), a young Irish convict woman, chases a British officer (Sam Claflin) 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 (Baykali Ganambarr), who is also marked by trauma from his own violence filled past. As their journey leads them deeper into the wilderness, they must learn to find empathy for one another, while weighing the true cost of revenge.
