Our friends at Peccadillo Pictures have been kind enough to offer us another great competition. This time, to celebrate the release of last years biggest and most important gay picture, KEEP THE LIGHTS ON, directed by Ira Sachs (Married Life) and starring Thure Lindhardt and Zachary Booth. This film was a runaway hit both in the UK and USA, being showcased at the 56th BFI London Film Festival and being chosen as a Critics' Choice at Time Out on theatrical release last year.
Ira Sachs' Keep The Lights On is the story of Erik (Thure Lindhardt) and Paul (Zachary Booth), and their decade long relationship whilst living and hurting together in New York City. At the core, this film demonstrates and explores the ways in which the couple live together and apart and how sex and drugs are used to devastate their relationship. Erik is a filmmaker who is intends to make a documentary about Avery Willard; an artist and gay pornographer whilst Paul is a respectable lawyer, who remains (for the first act) in the closet.
FrightFest 2012 saw The Arrival of Wang, directed by the Manetti Bros. (Paura 3D) and starring Francesca Cuttica, as both a fan favourite and tocritical acclaim (watch out for the arrival of our review, see what I did there?). Now, here is the fun stuff. Ahead of it's DVD landing, Peccadillo Pictures have released the VOD rental for this unique picture and now is your chance to check out the film right here, on FRR!
