Against an early-19th century colonial Australia backdrop, director Jennifer Kent’s The Nightingale showcases a harrowing tale of revenge.
The Nightingale is Jennifer Kent’s anticipated written/directorial follow-up to her 2014 feature debut, The Babadook, a surprisingly-symbolic horror offering that uses the conventionally frightening specter of a top-hat-touting monster for a rather unconventional depiction of a maternal element of the human condition.
The film, which debuted at the Venice International Film Festival back in September 2018, and was reviewed right here on Den of Geek back in February after its Sundance screening, will finally see a proper release this summer, serving as a prospective buzz-generating vehicle for its star, Italian actress Aisling Franciosi, who amongst notable TV runs, is best known from her Game of Thrones flashback role as Westeros’ Helen of Troy herself, Lyanna Stark.
