About the film:

Two lighthouse keepers try to maintain their sanity while living on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s.

“Conjuring menace and mystery from solitude and seagulls, The Lighthouse is a folk tale, a black comedy, a horror, a mystery, a (platonic?) romance – and something more still, something unspeakable. Something like a masterpiece, perhaps.”

—John Nugent for Empire Magazine

About the filmmaker:

Born in New England, Robert Eggers started off in theater, directing several classic plays. His career as a short film director and art director led to two features, his 2015 debut film The Witch, which earned him numerous accolades including Best Director at Sundance and Best First Feature at the Independent Spirit Awards, and the 2019 Academy Award-nominated The Lighthouse, which also won a FIPRESCI prize at Cannes.

Eggers’ latest film, The Northman (2022), is an epic Viking-age saga that premiered to critical acclaim.
