Winner of the Outstanding Dramatic Feature Film at this year’s Outfest and the Teddy Award at the 2012 Berlin International Film Festival, KEEP THE LIGHTS ON is director Ira Sachs’ (MARRIED LIFE, FORTY SHADES OF BLUE) harrowing and romantic look at love and all of its manifestations.This gritty story set in New York City chronicles the emotionally and sexually charged journey of documentary filmmaker Erik (acclaimed Danish actor Thure Lindhardt) and closeted lawyer Paul (Zachary Booth, Damages). In a decade–long relationship defined by highs and lows, Erik struggles to negotiate his own boundaries and dignity while being true to himself.
