THE NIGHTINGALE is an Australian thriller, set at the turn of the nineteenth century, in which a woman seeks revenge for acts of violence against herself and her family.

Sexual violence

There are multiple scenes of rape, including gang rape, and sexual threat.

Violence

There are scenes of bloody violence, including racist violence. During a rape scene, the victim’s baby is struck against a wall and killed; the baby’s face is concealed by her clothing but we see her body go limp on impact. A man is stabbed and bludgeoned to death, resulting in strong gory detail. Other violence includes bloody shootings and stabbings.

Language

There is aggressive use of very strong language (‘c**t’), in addition to use of strong language (‘f**k’). People also use racist terms including ‘boy’, ‘black bastard’, ‘black monkey’ and ‘black devil’.

A brief scene of strong sex shows a woman vigorously riding a man in bed. Occasional dream sequences feature moments of strong threat including infrequent ‘jump scare’ moments.
