The Nightingale (2019)

Adventure, Drama, Thriller 2h 16m

In early nineteenth-century Australia, as land conflicts between Aboriginal inhabitants and colonisers reach a frightening crescendo, 21-year-old Irish convict Clare (Aisling Franciosi) struggles to be freed from her abusive master Lieutenant Hawkins (Sam Claflin). After he commits a terrible act of violence against her family, she pursues him through the rugged Tasmanian wilderness to seek revenge. To assist her on her journey, she enlists young Aboriginal tracker Billy (Baykali Ganambarr), who is also marked by trauma from his own violence-filled past. Jennifer Kent follows up to her smash hit The Babadook with this violent period thriller.
