The Lightkeepers Blu-Ray Review

The Lightkeepers Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: Academy Award® winner Richard Dreyfuss (Jaws, The Goodbye Girl) stars with Emmy and Tony winner Blythe Danner (Meet the Fockers) and Oscar® nominee Bruce Dern (Coming Home) in this warmhearted tale of lost love and second chances. The year is 1912. Vowing to swear off women for good, curmudgeonly Seth Atkins (Dreyfuss) takes refuge tending a remote Cape Cod lighthouse. Then, a mysterious stranger (Tom Wisdom, Pirate Radio) literally washes up in Seth’s life, with a past full of secrets and a similar aversion to females. But the arrival of two beautiful, spirited women (Danner and Mamie Gummer) will test the men’s resolve – and send all four of them sailing into uncharted romantic waters!

Review: The Lightkeepers is a romantic film about the perseverance of love.  Dreyfus plays a grumpy lighthouse keeper that meets a young boy.  They form a bond that is centered around their disdain for women.  Soon, a nearby cabin is occupied by appropriately aged female matches for the two and love finds a way!

This film is a bit cliche and definately contrived at points, but its cute and a fun watch still.  There are some very good acting performances in the film, while a few other actors don't live up to their reputations.  This one is a nice film to enjoy with your sweetheart.  Nothing ground breaking, but certainly sweet.

The blu-ray offers little for extras, with the exception of a few brief interviews, but the high-definition isn't to be missed.

Interest Range: Drama
