Powerful Film - The Nightingale review by PhilipC

Spoiler Alert
11/02/2020

This is not an easy watch. The film is as brutal as the period that is being portrayed, but it is definitely one to watch. Jennifer Kent has made a powerful film, telling an important story.

Great film although not easy to watch - The Nightingale review by TH

Spoiler Alert
03/07/2020

Jennifer Kent follow up to the babbadook is a really different type of film. This follows the attempt of a young irish girl looking to get revenge on the british soldier who violated her and murderer her family. Aisling is great and believable in the lead role. Sam Claflin and Damon Herriman as the soldiers are the nasty cowardice soldiers and play the parts well.

Not the easiest of films to watch but it's very powerful and emotional.

A very good film that captures you and hold you in its grip like a hurricane. I could not watch it: it took three attempts but glad I persisted.
