Peter Snowden (David Oyelowo) is a war veteran. He documents his days and feelings through a webcam while his dead mother decomposes in her room. We see him emotionally deteriorate before our eyes. As one would expect, the stench of the body becomes too much to bear and Peter is forced to transport her.
This is one man’s story portrayed by one Actor who carries his performance, and the viewer, in one setting, from start to finish. If you had any questions as to Oyelowo’s depth and skill as an actor, they will be answered with this film. He simply wraps you into his manic state and holds you there long past the closing credits.
A Movie like this is difficult to pull off without exceptional dialogue. The creative production of this film reminds me a lot of the movie Locke. Nightingale (2014) was written by Frederick Mensch and directed by Elliott Lester.
Not surprising, David Oyelowo was nominated for best actor in both the Golden Globes and the Primetime Emmys. Oyelowo and Brad Pitt were among the executive producers for Nightingale. This is easily four stars out of five.
