From Robert Eggers, the visionary filmmaker behind modern horror masterpiece The Witch, comes a tale of two lighthouse keepers on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s who are faced with solitude, but start to lose their sanity and become threatened by their worst nightmares.
Shot in shimmering 35mm black and white with a daring and intense aspect ratio, The Lighthouse is brilliant, original and distinctive. Eggers continues to prove himself one of contemporary cinema’s most audacious and innovative filmmakers – finding ways entirely of his own of terrifying his audiences.
Pattinson and Dafoe boast extraordinary performances in this screenplay, with ‘everything about The Lighthouse lands with a crash. It’s cinema to make your head and soul ring’. (The Telegraph)
