Unlike literary adaptations that struggle to bring the complexities of a novel to the screen, this feels almost staggeringly simple. Things that may have worked in the novel Death and Nightingales feel like melodrama or cliché here. The movie is filmed beautifully, especially in any scene involving the water, but it can't overcome a skeletal plot. When so little happens, every event takes on outsized significance; the thin plot and broad characterizations in Death and Nightingales can't bear that weight.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
