With The Babadook, Jennifer Kent brought us an instant horror classic that used a storybook monster as a vessel to explore the repression of grief and the horrors of motherhood.

In her highly anticipated follow-up The Nightingale, Kent once again explores the traumas the change us in her brutal tale of revenge. Taking place in 1825 Tasmania, Clare is a young convict who finds her world shattered after a British officer (Sam Claflin) commits a shocking act of brutality against her family. With the help of an Aboriginal tracker whose life has also been touched by extreme violence, the two set out on a journey through the Tasmanian wilderness hell-bent on vengeance.

Winner of the Special Jury Prize at the 2018 Venice Film Festival, Kent’s latest uses a feminist lens for a no-holds-barred look at violence, and the reverberating impact it has on the world.
