The Nightingale Review

It fills me with so much energy and excitement and enthusiasm when I watch an incredible film. Sometimes you can tell from the first few minutes that a film is going to be amazing. There’s just something about the filmmaking and opening scenes that shows how massively talented and in control the filmmaker is, and as the rest of the film plays out, it only gets better and better. Jennifer Kent’s new film The Nightingale is phenomenal, one of the best films of the year. I don’t even think the word “masterpiece” can do it justice, it’s such a riveting, enlivening, extraordinary cinematic creation that it’s worthy of more rigorous lingo and more thorough praise. I loved every last second of it — and I mean LOVED it — and the film features two of my favorite performances of the year.
