Jennifer Kent’s THE NIGHTINGALE Australian Release Date Revealed!
After premiering to rave reviews at last October’s Venice Film Festival where it was awarded the ‘Special Jury Prize’, THE NIGHTINGALE will open in cinemas across Australia on Thursday August 29th.
THE NIGHTINGALE is writer/director Jennifer Kent long awaited sophomore feature following her 2014 multi-award winning THE BABADOOK and stars Aisling Franciosi (THE FALL), Baykali Ganambarr and Sam Claflin (ADRIFT).
Set in 1825, Clare, a young Irish convict woman, chases a British officer 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, who is also marked by trauma from his own violence-filled past.
