Death and Nightingales

194 members 1 season3 episodes

Based on Eugene McCabe's modern Irish classic, Death and Nightingales is a riveting story of love, betrayal, deception and revenge, set in the beautiful haunting countryside of Fermanagh in 1885. A place where neighbours observe each other and inform, a world of spies, confessions and double dealing; where a pervading sense of beauty is shot through with menace and impending doom. Set over a desperately tense 24- hour period, it's Beth Winters' (Ann Skelly) 25th birthday - the day she has decided to join the charming Liam Ward (Jamie Dornan) and escape from her limited life and difficult and complex relationship with her Protestant landowner stepfather Billy (Matthew Rhys). As decades of pain and betrayal finally build to a devastating climax, Death And Nightingales is a powerful and gripping drama that follows a woman struggling to control her own destiny and will illuminate tensions that tear both families and nations apart.




Excellent drame comme c'est souvent le cas avec les mini-séries d'outre-manche. Acteurs- et trices haut de gamme, et c'est une joie de voir Mattew Rhys à l'oeuvre, dans un tout autre registre que dans le fabuleux "the americans" et à nouveau très convaincant en Billy torturé.
