Sundance 2012 - Zachary Booth and Ira Sachs talk 'Keep the lights on'
Lead Zachary Booth and director Ira Sachs talk with Greg Ellwood how their new movie 'Keep the lights on' learned them to live a transparent life.
It's 1997 and New York City is in a state of intense flux when documentary filmmaker Erik Rothman (Thure Lindhardt) first 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. (Official Description)
