Acclaimed filmmaker Robert Eggers (The Witch) returns with a hypnotic and hallucinatory tale of two lighthouse keepers clinging onto their sanity on a mysterious New England island in the 1890s. Ephraim Winslow (Robert Pattinson) and Tom Wake (Willem Dafoe) are beginning a four-week stretch of duty at the lighthouse. The two men veer wildly between enmity, comradeship, father-son intimacy and hatred. But they are keeping secrets from one another and, on this wind-lashed, uttermost spot, the tension mounts. Visually stunning, stark and unforgiving.
