A Briny Nautical Thriller

Eggers' sophomore film documents the goings-on atop a small New England island in the 1890s. Two dissimilar lighthouse keepers (Robert Pattinson & Willem Dafoe) fight for power and sanity among blurred timelines and settings. Dark, brisly, and bleached with salt, this thriller and retelling of Prometheus of Greek mythology is as immersive as cinema gets. Features Academy Award-nominated black-and-white cinematography by Jarin Blaschke.
