Winner “BEST FEATURE FILM” at the Berlin International Film Festival, plus four  international film festival awards

“Lindhardt, sweet and childish and achingly vulnerable, gives a stunning performance.”
   Entertainment Weekly

“Not only does this film gloriously fulfill the potential that Ira Sachs has tantalized movie-lovers with for years, it also help explains what took him so long. Out of lost love comes a terrific work of art; it's the oldest story in the world, but it always feels new when it's done right.”
   Salon

“A haunting, immersive portrait of a romance between two men, one that's marked – and marred – by both drug dependency and emotional codependency. Not unlike last year's gay-themed drama, “Weekend,” it proves an important and mature piece of business.”
   Los Angeles Times

    I came across Keep The Lights On when I heard that the music from Arthur Russell was going to be used throughout the film, I went to see it at a cinema in London and loved what I watched. The film is a beautifully told story about a relationship between a documentary maker, Erik and lawyer called Paul. They are living in New York City, which becomes a character all to itself, and are trying to find a correct balance in their relationship between their working lives, the love they feel for each other and their own individual issues and addictions. Paul is dealing with his drug abuse, which starts to destroy their relationship. It’s a very emotional ride, but by the end is so worth it. Apparently, the film is based upon a true story, which makes it even more interesting to watch. I certainly recommend this film because it is so well made, and so well acted.
