From the studio behind Moonlight, Lady Bird, Ex Machina, The Witch, Eighth Grade, Hereditary & more comes THE LIGHTHOUSE, Winner of the FIPRESCI Prize (Eggers), 2019 Cannes Film Festival. After receiving rave reviews at the Toronto International Film Festival, THE LIGHTHOUSE looks set to be an Oscar contender, particularly for its two stars.
From Robert Eggers, the visionary filmmaker behind modern horror masterpiece The Witch comes this hypnotic and hallucinatory tale of two lighthouse keepers on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s.
It tells an intimate and maddening story of two lighthouse keepers who slowly lose their minds while living in isolation. Set in 1890 Nova Scotia, the film follows the story of an ageing lighthouse keeper named Thomas Wake (Dafoe) who teams with a younger man named Ephraim Winslow (Pattinson) on a remote and mysterious New England island. You can expect a lot of drama in this film, which is elevated by the black-and-white colour palette.
