Discovery: THE NIGHTINGALE d. Jennifer Kent, 2017 presented by Screen25 Cinema at Harris Academy South Norwood (01 APR 19:45):
The former penal colony of Van Diemen’s Land (now the Australian state of Tasmania) is the setting for this powerful revenge tale from Jennifer Kent. Irish convict Clare Carroll works as a servant for the British Army, only to be betrayed by a corrupt lieutenant. Aided by an Aboriginal tracker, she sets out to get even, with explosive results.
Filled with breathtaking images of the outback’s natural landscapes and jaw-dropping fight sequences, THE NIGHTINGALE successfully carves out its own genre of transcendental cinematic experience.
Our monthly Discovery strand is dedicated to showcasing the brilliance of often missed and small release independent cinema.
