The Nightingale (Netflix streaming):

Set in 1825, Clare, a young Irish convict woman, chases a British officer through the rugged Tasmanian wilderness, bent on revenge for a terrible act of violence he committed against her family. On the way she enlists the services of an Aboriginal tracker named Billy, who is also marked by trauma from his own violence-filled past.

Heavy movie. Some disturbing scenes, rather raw. The revenge factor is the plot, but the subplots really steal the movie. Multi-faceted, it does take a lot out of you. Runs at 2:30 hours, and I feel it could have been 3 hours, no problem. You definitely “feel” the characters emotions, their motives, etc. Highly recommend, but I also would say you have to be in the mood for it.
