So not do we have the directors of The Witch and Hereditary back this year with new horror films, but also Jennifer Kent, who made the genuinely chilling and disturbing The Babadook. Her follow-up movie is 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”.
Kent also scripts, while the cast includes Aisling Franciosi, Sam Claflin, Damon Herriman, Ewen Leslie, Harry Greenwood, Baykali Ganambarr and Magnolia Maymuru.
The release date is August 2, 2019.
