SYNOPSIS

A foghorn score underlines the first meeting between Ephraim Winslow and Thomas Wake. Both men are confined to an island as lighthouse keepers. Apprentice Winslow is enthralled by the lantern, but his weathered partner distrustingly keeps the logs and keys. As Winslow fantasises about what lies behind the shining beacon, the lines between mythology and reality begin to blur. With spilled beans and battered seabirds, an ominous storm approaches, and tensions between the two become inevitable.

As a sophomore film, The Lighthouse proves Eggers’ consistency in anchoring and elevating the horror genre through myth and folklore. This stunning dramatic graduality is a welcome contrast to Eggers’ bolder portrayal of horror in The Witch.
