Aisling Franciosi and Sam Claflin on The Nightingale

sam claflin aisling francoisi the nightingale interview jennifer kent alex moreland

You should never see a scene of – well, any kind of violence, but in this case, sexual violence and not be made to feel uncomfortable. In my opinion, it’s filmed wrong if you don’t feel repulsed by it – there’s something wrong in the way that it’s been depicted.

This is a very exciting one! First-ever video interview. Not that you can actually see me in it, mind – I’m rather more suited to a radio career than television – but I was in the room, and they were filmed, so it counts. And it was a pretty cool experience generally, so that’s good.

I’ve linked directly to the YouTube video above, but there’s also a little bit of a write-up over at Flickering Myth, if you’re interested in that as well. It’s a good interview, I think – we only had a relatively short time together, but still managed to get to the heart of what’s proving to be quite a challenging film. (I’ll have my own review of The Nightingale up in a few days – it’s certainly quite a striking film, if nothing else.)

  1. Absolutely 100% one of the most horrifically brutal films I’ve ever seen. But also definitely one of the most important films ever made. It truly shows you the destructive horror of colonialism, what’s shaped certain countries and why people of color and women are still discriminated against and brutalized today. As they say here, the government and the people become desensitized to the violence and prejudice against “the other” and repeatedly reward the ones in charge. I’m glad we’re having these conversations today, because it reflects our history and why those terrible aspects of humanity still continue in the present day.
