It’s 1997 and New York City is in a state of intense flux when documentary filmmaker Erik Rothman (Thure Lindhardt) meets Paul Lucy (Zachary Booth), a handsome but closeted lawyer in the publishing field. What begins as a highly charged first encounter soon becomes something much more, and a relationship quickly develops. As the two men start building a home and life together, each continues to privately battle their own compulsions and addictions. A film about sex, friendship, intimacy and most of all, love, Keep the Lights On takes an honest look at the nature of relationships in our times.
Reviewing the film on its theatrical release in November 2012, So So Gay called it ‘deftly powerful, quietly unpolitical and beautifully crafted’ and praised its ‘naked, fearless depiction of everyday sexuality and the darknesses of modern life’.
Now, Peccadillo Pictures and So So Gay are offering readers a chance to win a DVD copy of the film. We have three up for grabs – simply complete the form below before 6pm on Tuesday 5 February and you could be a winner.
