Let's Spend Forever With Kent

byJason Adams

I don't know how you guys all felt aboutThe Nightingale-- that is if you've gotten the chance to seeThe Nightingale;did it get much play outside of cities?-- but Jennifer Kent's divisive second film has been,for me,a 2019 favorite.Add it up withThe Babadookand I'm ready to follow Kent anywhere now,and it looks like we knowwhere she's taking us next-- to 1890s Tennessee to be precise.

She's going to adaptAlice + Freda Forever,Alexis Coe's 2014 true-crime retelling of a story that captivated slash horrified the unprepared nation,involving two teenage girls who fell in love and whose sapphic obsession quick turned to violence and most unsavory murder.It was a big trial with lots of headlines,and it probably in some way shaped the way this country thought about LGBT love.I suppose it's a chicken or egg situation -- they didn't like us already,but this didn't help!

Kent plans on filming next summer,so this'll probably be a 2021 film -- too far away by miles,but something to look forward to for sure.You can check outmore on the case on Wikipedia,where they've also got somewhat vague sketches of the girls,which leads me to my next question -- who would you cast?Although I wouldn't be surprised if Kent went for newcomers,which worked out pretty well for Peter Jackson with the similarly themedHeavenly Creatureswouldn't you say...

Review: Jennifer Kent's "The Nightingale"

by Ben Miller

In the world of Jennifer Kent'sThe Nightingale,no one is safe unless they've won the lottery.  If you lucked into being born as a white English male in 19thcentury Tasmania,you can rest easy in the knowledge you are powerful.  If you are a woman,of another race,or from another country,that same luxury is not afforded to you.  Death and misery looms around every corner.

The titular Nightingale comes in the form of Clare (Game of ThronesAisling Franciosi) as she serves as a maid and singer for a group of British officers.  She is held there as penance for her crimes of thievery,being Irish and being a woman.She is overseen by Lieutenant Hawkins (Sam Claflin),who is procrastinating processing her release,due to his infatuation with her.Clare's husband Aidan (a wonderfully warm Michael Sheasby) tries to persuade Hawkins to release her,but to no avail.  Things spiral violently out of control.  When Clare survives the unthinkable,she seeks revenge on those who have wronged her.

This might read like a simple rape and revenge film on paper,but it is much more nuanced and realistic than that in execution...
