Clare, a 21-year-old Irish convict in 1825 Australia, is desperate to be free of her abusive master, Lieutenant Hawkins. When her 7-year sentence is served, he refuses to release her from his charge. Clare's husband Aidan retaliates, and Hawkins and his cronies make her entire family suffer. When British authorities fail to deliver justice, Clare seeks her own. She enlists the help of a young Aboriginal tracker Billy who grudgingly takes her through the rugged wilderness to track down Hawkins. Both Clare and Billy suffer their own traumas and mutual distrust, but as their journey leads them deeper into the wilderness, they must learn to find empathy for one another, while weighing the true cost of revenge.

The Nightingale is part thriller, part horror. If you're looking for a safe, sumptuous costume movie, we recommend seeing Downton Abbey instead. And if you need trigger warnings, consider yourself warned.
