The first trailer for Ira Sach’s Sundance chest punch Keep the Lights On gives a hint at the kind of power that it’s capable of. In the 1997-set film, a documentary filmmaker (Thure Lindhardt) and a lawyer (Zachary Booth) build a deeply felt relationship off of an incendiary first meeting. They dive into each other and build a life together which is threatened by a destructive addiction.
