Watch: David Oyelowo Stars in HBO's 'Nightingale' Official Trailer
There's no escaping your own mind. HBO has debuted a trailer for their upcoming premiere Nightingale, a feature film starring David Oyelowo in a one-man drama directed by Elliott Lester. Oyelowo plays a mentally unbalanced war veteran who becomes so obsessed with an impending dinner appointment with it old friend that it drives him mad. Many will agree that Oyelowo should've received an Oscar nomination for his performance in Selma last year, but he's a very talented guy and I'm sure he'll prove himself again and again, with roles like this one showing how great he is. I'm curious to check this out - give the trailer a look.
Here's the official trailer for Elliott Lester's Nightingale, direct from HBO's YouTube:
A lonely war veteran psychologically unravels ahead of an old friend's impending visit. Nightingale is the latest film from commercials director Elliot Lester, of the action film Blitz previously. The script was written by newcomer Frederick Mensch. The film first premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival a year ago, and is just now being released by HBO Films (we're happy to feature it even though it's not a theatrical debut). HBO Films presents Nightingale, starring David Oyelowo, airing on Friday, May 29th at 9PM on HBO (and available on HBO Now / Go after).
