THE LIGHTHOUSE WINS CRITICS' CHOICE AWARD AT CANNES 2019

Robert Eggers’ psychodrama “The Lighthouse” has been named the best movie at Cannes’ Critics Week and Directors’ Fortnight by the International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI). The victory for “The Lighthouse” gives A24 its first major prize at Cannes and continues the awards buzz for “The Lighthouse” that exploded after the movie’s world premiere earlier this week. The film premiered in the Directors’ Fortnight sidebar.

Scored by Core composer Mark Korven, the film stars actors Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson in a hallucinogenic tale of two lighthouse keepers, trapped on a desolate late 19th century New England rocky outcrop. The music and sound design work in concert to underscore their nightmarish decent into madness.
