A gory and ambitious Australian western from the director of THE BABADOOK

The year is 1825 and the place is Australia, where Irish convict Clare wants nothing more than to murder the British officer who raped her and killed her husband and child. Gory, gruesome and ambitious, THE NIGHTINGALE twists the tropes of the “rape revenge” movie into a study of how abuse begets abuse and how no one escapes imperialism’s dehumanizing spiral of violence unscathed. THE BABADOOK director Jennifer Kent has crafted a disturbing and highly intelligent treatise on violence. (NB! This film features graphic depictions of rape and murder).
