Set during the colonisation of Australia in 1825, the film follows a young Irish convict woman (Aisling Franciosi – Game of Thrones) as she 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.
A powerful and beautifully crafted Australian story, The Nightingale has received critical acclaim and captivated audiences around the world in the film festival circuit. The highly anticipated second feature film from Jennifer Kent (The Babadook), The Nightingale is a meditation on the consequences of violence and the price of seeking vengeance.
