“Beautiful and devasting.” - Tom Hall, Filmmaker Magazine

“A front runner for best American film of the year … A beautifully aching love story.” – Eric Hynes, Village Voice

“You simply have to see it. This magnificently sad new movie feels very much like a throwback to the rougher glory days of indie cinema.” – Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York


It's 1997 and New York City is in a state of intense flux when documentary filmmaker Erik Rothman (Thure Lindhardt, Flame and Citron) first meets Paul Lucy (Zachary Booth, Damages), a handsome but closeted lawyer in the publishing field. What begins as a highly charged first encounter soon becomes something much more, and a relationship quickly develops. As the two men start building a home and life together, each continues to privately battle their own compulsions and addictions. A harrowing, romantic and visceral film about sex, friendship, intimacy and most of all, love, Keep the Lights On, from writer/director Ira Sachs (Forty Shades of Blue), takes a fiercely honest look at the nature of relationships in our times. (Dir. by Ira Sachs, 2012, 101 min., Not Rated, Music Box Films) HD Digital Presentation
