From Robert Eggers, the visionary filmmaker behind modern horror masterpiece The Witch, comes this hypnotic and hallucinatory tale of two lighthouse keepers (Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson) on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s. Shot in shimmering 35mm black and white with a daring and intense aspect ratio, The Lighthouse is brilliant, original and distinctive, boasting extraordinary performances.
