Keep The Lights On
Keep the Lights On chronicles an emotionally and sexually charged journey of two men in New York City through love, friendship, and addiction. Documentary filmmaker Erik (Thure Lindhardt) and closeted lawyer Paul (Zachary Booth) meet through a casual encounter and soon find themselves embroiled in a deeper connection. Over a decade-long relationship defined by highs and lows, Erik struggles to negotiate his personal boundaries and dignity, while Paul battles the demons of drug dependence. Harrowing and romantic, visceral and profound, Ira Sachs' fearlessly personal Keep The Lights On looks at love and all of its manifestations, from despair to grace.
