Carol doesn't feel very Christmassy. What's all the fuss about?…

You have never seen a film quite like The Lighthouse. Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson play Victorian lightkeepers sticking out a four-week stint on a jagged windswept island. Thomas is the grizzled, demonic older man who is supposed to be training the younger Ephraim. Yet there is little guidance in their increasingly drunken meals or in Thomas’ flinty banter – ‘Thirteen Christmases at sea. Little ones at home. She never forgave it’. As these sea dogs’ grog runs low and phantoms begin to beset the island, this deliciously gothic thriller becomes ever-more distinctive, compelling, and wild. A future cult classic.
Presented in partnership with Enjoy Digital.
