The Nightingale - Preview Screening

Wednesday, August 28 at 6:30PM

Written and Directed by Jennifer Kent, THE NIGHTINGALE is a meditation on the consequences of violence and the price of seeking vengeance. Set during the colonisation of Australia in 1825, the film follows Clare (Aisling Franciosi) as she chases a British officer (Sam Claflin) 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 (Baykali Ganambarr), who is also marked by trauma from his own violence-filled past.

1825 Tasmania. A young Irish convict woman seeking revenge for a terrible act of violence against her family, takes an Aboriginal male tracker with her through the interior and gets much more than she bargained for.
