STAFF PICKS from the Digital Services Department
The Lighthouse (R)
It is the 1890s and you're one of two lighthouse keepers stuck on an island several miles off the coast. Totally secluded from the rest of the world, storms batter your island as you try to maintain the light--and your sanity. This is the basic gist of The Lighthouse, an excellent Robert Eggers horror/drama starring Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson who both put in great performances. Winner of the 2019 Cannes Film Festival and Oscar nominated for cinematography, there is plenty to enjoy in this slow burner film that deals with the effects of isolation, mismatched personalities, and paranoia. Highly recommend.
