Costume Designer Margot Wilson & Production Designer Alex Holmes' Breathtaking Work on Display in New 'The Nightingale' Trailer
Set during the colonisation of Van Diemen’s Land by English settlers, the story follows young Irish convict Clare (Aisling Franciosi) seeking revenge for the bloody crimes of Lieutenant Hawkins (Sam Claflin).
Clare enlists Aboriginal tracker Billy (Baykali Ganambarr) in her harrowing trek, as she attempts to enact retribution on her former master before he reaches the new town of Launceston. Their journey sees the pair bond over their shared tragedies, and the trauma of losing the place they call home.
There are still tickets available for advanced screenings at this year’s Sydney Film Festival, which you can purchase here.
The Nightingale will be officially released in Australia on August 29th.
