David Oyelowo is dealing with post traumatic stress disorder and about seven different personalities in his upcoming HBO produced film, “Nightingale.” Oyelowo stars as Peter Snowden, a former serviceman obsessing over an old army friend, whom he loves, as his life begins to spiral downward, with their reunion approaching. The film follows Peter as he records his private thoughts and feelings – his nightingale song – in the days leading up to his reunion with Edward. Before long the hostile world outside Peter’s door begins to threaten the idyllic future that he’s so desperately trying to build. Let me say, this role is far cry from Oyelowo’s portrayal of Dr. King in “Selma” but definitely one to check out considering he is the only character.
