Following The Nightingale's limited theatrical run and arrival on Hulu earlier this year, you'll be able to bring Jennifer Kent's follow up to The Babadook home on Blu-ray in February.
Shout! Factory and IFC Midnight will release the film on February 4th, 2020.
Set in Tasmania in 1825, The Nightingale follows a 21-year-old Irish female convict (Aisling Franciosi) who witnesses the brutal murder of her husband and baby by her soldier master and his cronies. Unable to find justice, she takes an Aboriginal male tracker with her through the hellish wilderness to seek revenge on the men.
"The film is a study on violence and what a violent mind and therefore a violent society can do to damage the human spirit," Kent told Variety earlier this year. "It’s about how we can evolve through and beyond that violence. For me ‘The Nightingale’ is about love — not in a schmaltzy way — but its power to allow us to evolve as human beings."
The film also stars Sam Claflin, Damon Herriman, Ewen Leslie, Harry Greenwood, Baykali Ganambarr and Magnolia Maymuru.
