Movie of the Week

WATCH: Modern Gay Classic — “Keep The Lights On”

As acclaimed gay filmmaker Ira Sachs is currently completing post-production on his exciting new gay drama, Love Is Strange (co-starring John Lithgow and Alfred Molina as a married gay couple in New York) it’s the perfect time to revisit his award-winning 2012 drama, Keep The Lights On — about a very different New York City couple. Danish heartthrob Thure Lindhardt, (The Borgias) stars as documentary filmmaker Eric who meets and falls in love with closeted lawyer Paul (Zachary Booth, Damages). The semi-autobiographical drama recounts an almost decade-long relationship of beautiful highs, abysmal lows, and wildly dysfunctional patterns in which Paul grapples with increasingly serious chemical dependency issues and Erik struggles to negotiate his own boundaries, retain his dignity and navigate the impact of addiction on the love of his life and himself.

Hailed as a modern gay classic and as one of the best American films of the decade, Keep The Lights On is this week’s Movie of the Week. Watch the trailer above and rent or download it directly from now.
