Robert Eggers, director of The VVitch (IFF 2015), comes back with a new unsettling tale in black-and-white. Ephraim Winslow (Pattinson) arrives on a remote island along the coast of New England to man a lighthouse alongside his disgruntled senior Thomas Wake (Dafoe). As a master/servant dynamic establishes between them, Ephraim grows bitter towards the old man. But upon learning about the fate of Tom’s former assistant, he descends into paranoia. Isolated from the rest of the world on a land where time seems to have arrested, the pair slowly spirals into madness.
