THE BABADOOK Director’s Next Film, THE NIGHTINGALE, Available to Own on Digital Friday & VOD November 1st

When The Nightingale screened in Sydney last Summer, many audience members found the graphic violence portrayed too much to tolerate. To recap:

At the Sydney premiere on Sunday at the Ritz cinema in Randwick, one woman walked out during the early stages, shouting: “I’m not watching this. [The main character has] already been raped twice.”
