It’s 1997 and New York City is in a state of intense flux when documentary filmmaker Erik Rothman (Thure Lindhardt) first meets Paul Lucy (Zachary Booth), 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 film about sex, friendship, intimacy and most of all, love, Keep the Lights On takes an honest look at the nature of relationships in our times.

The trailer hooked me and I just had to watch it. I’m a huge fan of Thure Lindhardt and he’s brilliant in this movie. I will say that the movie is a bit weird in the beginning, but once you get used to the characters it’s no big deal. They also tend to whisper, so I had to turn the volume up and down constantly which is a minor detail, because the movie is great.

All in all, I would give it ★★★★★☆ (5/6)
