A fearless exploration of drug abuse in the 1990s, Keep The Lights On is as unflinching a drama as you’d expect from director Ira Sachs.
The Forty Shades Of Blue filmmaker helms the story of Erik (Thure Lindhardt), a Danish moviemaker working in New York City.
He soon falls for lawyer Paul (Zachary Booth), but the pair’s relationship is blighted by Paul’s drug and sexual addictions.
After premiering at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, Keep The Lights On went on to win the Teddy Award for Best Feature at the Berlin Film Festival.
It’s a punishing drama that features some fantastic performances, not least from Booth and Lindhardt as the struggling lovers.
Keep The Lights On opens in cinemas on 2 November. Will you be watching? Tell us below.
