"Dark days of early Australian history"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Set in Tasmania in 1825 this well-made movie portrays the brutality and darkness of the life of Irish convicts and Aborigines under the British military who acted with impunity. Even when convicts had complete their time they would not be released and continued to suffer abuse. The Aborigines were treated particularly ruthlessly.

Description

The Nightingale

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.

Critic Reviews:

  • " A very beautiful and compellingly told tale of a dark history, delivered with a sense of fury and anger that more than makes it searing and distinctive. Yet, in its rage, it threatens to lose sight of its audience. " – Andrew Gaudion
  • " A surprisingly beautiful work, even poetic, despite the harshenss of what it tells and shows. And this is a merit available to very few current filmmakers. " – José Martín
  • " The film has done something truly special and is worthy of our rapt, horrified attention. " – Sean O'Rourke
