The Lighthouse (15)
February 28th - March 4th
Shot in shimmering 35mm black and white, this psychological horror tale features bravura performances from Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson.
Sometime in the 1890s, two lighthouse keepers start their shift on a remote and mysterious New England island. At loggerheads from the very beginning, in the midst of profound solitude, they begin to lose their minds. Director Robert Eggers is the visionary filmmaker behind modern horror masterpiece The Witch, and the stylistic devices he uses, a daring and intense aspect ratio and an atmospheric, claustrophobic soundscape of crashing waves and shrieking gulls, heighten the unremitting power of this distinctive and immersive drama.
