The Nightingale (2017)
Critic Reviews for The Nightingale
If The Nightingale doesn't quite fulfil the high expectations for Kent's sophomore feature, it still shows a director with a muscular handle on her craft...
Kent's elemental revenge tale attains a near-mythic grandeur over the course of its arduous, ravishing trek.
The Nightingale isn't a bad film; merely an unremarkable one we seem to have seen many times before.
One of the most memorable works in its genre - a parable that never turns violence into a spectacle, but is resolutely committed to expose the poisonous double prism of racism and sexism it feeds upon.
It's a noble effort. That resigned-to-violence consistency is a fascinating pitch that brings a new perspective to a well-worn genre.
