The Lighthouse: Trailer Talk. By Megan Williams.
A24 have had an amazing catalogue when it comes to distributing films and what films they pick. Unique and, often weird, films have been pushed into the limelight because of them. Films which otherwise probably wouldn’t have had the same attention if it were another studio, and their latest release is no exception when it comes to gaining buzz.
‘The Lighthouse’ stars Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson as two lighthouse keepers in a remote island off New England in the 1890’s. The film shines a light on their life working in this environment.
As you’d imagine from that era and environment, the film looks extremely eerie and isolating. Both actors are fantastic and I respect Robert Pattinson purely because of the interesting film choices he makes. I think the different styles of acting will blend together beautifully. The decision to shoot in black and white makes this look dark and haunting, further adding to the eeriness.
This film has quickly crept up on my radar, and I’m glad it has; I’m definitely looking to seeing what this nightmarish-looking film has to offer.
‘The Lighthouse’ is in cinemas 18th October 2019.
