The Nightingale ★★★★★

“What’s wrong, soldier boy? Did your mommy not love you?”

The most brutal and intense movie i’ve ever seen in my life. 

People walked out, someone fainted. Completely unflinching and horrifying from start to finish, and many scenes made me so uncomfortable i didn’t want to watch anymore.  Jennifer Kent is the only person who could have made this film, and her exploration of female trauma and colonialism’s impact on the aboriginal peoples of Australia & Tasmania was incredible. I’m gonna go throw up now.
