Nightingale (TV movie) scene
"Nightingale" (TV movie) on HBO is a single-character drama film starring Golden Globe nominee David Oyelowo ("Selma"). The provocative drama probes the darkest corners of a disturbed mind, as a war veteran begins to unravel thread by thread. This searing story of solitude and isolation offers a poignant look at how life has failed one man.

The movie is a Cinderella story for first-time writer Frederick Mensch, whose screenplay was submitted on The Blacklist.com and caught the eye of executive producer Josh Weinstock, who brought it to the attention of director Elliott Lester. The two took the material to Katrina Wolfe of BN Films, which came on board to produce and finance the film.

With a production design by Richard Lassalle and lensing by Pieter Vermeer, Lester uses vivid and imaginative imagery to explore the character's traumatized psyche.

"Nightingale" is an HBO Films presentation in association with Plan B Entertainment; a BN Films production in association with Sea Smoke Entertainment and Yoruba Saxon Productions. Directed by Elliott Lester from a screenplay by Frederick Mensch, it is executive produced by Josh Weinstock, Katrina Wolfe and Elliott Lester, as well as Plan B's Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner. David Oyelowo also serves as executive producer. Co-executive producers are BN's Lucas Akoskin and Jonathan Gray, in addition to Alex Garcia of BN/AG Studios.
