Remember the creepy 2014 film ‘The Babadook’? The Australian horror movie surprised a lot of people with its success. It was one of the best reviewed movies of the year.
Jennifer Kent directed the flick, and now she’s making a return to Hollywood in 2019 with the upcoming revenge thriller, The Nightingale.
The Nightingale is a shockingly brutal tale of revenge set in Australia in the 1800s. Aisling Franciosi plays a young Irish convict on a journey to track down and kill a soldier who did something terrible to her and her family. The results are unpleasant, to say the least.
According to the reviews, this movie is difficult to watch, but not in a bad way…if that makes sense. It’s not a film that will make you feel good after watching it, but it is a good film.
The Nightingale currently sits at a comfortable 89% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s scheduled to be released August 2, 2019.
