Starring:
Robert Pattinson, Willem Dafoe
The Buzz:
Shot on 35mm black-and-white film stock, set in 1890, and telling the story of an aging lighthouse keeper, Robert Eggers’ follow-up to The Witch sounds just as moody and haunting as its predecessor. Stars Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe have both shared tales of how physically demanding and torturous the experience was, with Pattinson admitting that the intense shoot was “the closest I’ve come to punching a director”.
