Jennifer Kent: A Director to Watch
Photo: Jennifer Kent/ Over the last decade, Australian director Jennifer Kent has certainly made a mark on Cinema. Her first two films, ‘The Babadook’ and ‘The Nightingale’, are both brilliant. Kent is able to tackle difficult subject matter such as familial trauma and colonialism with a healthy blend of grit and tenderness. ‘The Babadook’, Kent’s first film, stands out as one of the better horror films of late. It presents a fairly simple evil-monster premise whilst remaining firmly rooted in themes of mental illness. Kent’s follow-up, ‘The Nightingale’, is an even better and admirably different venture which tackles the horror of British colonialism in Tasmania during the 19th century.
