Film: Award-winning “Keep The Lights On”

Keep the Lights On, one of the year’s best LGBT-themed films, opens in several NY and LA-area theaters this weekend, with additional engagements being added around the country in the coming months.

The film follows the loving but dysfunctional relationship of an aspiring filmmaker and his meth-addicted boyfriend over the course of a decade.

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, Damages) meet through a casual encounter, but soon find a deeper connection and become a couple.

Keep the Lights On premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year before moving on the Berlin International Film Festival, where it received the Teddy Award for best scripted feature film with an LGBT theme.
