MVFF's Spotlight on Robert Pattinson
Date: Saturday, October 5, 2019
Mill Valley Film Festival invites you to Spotlight on Robert Pattinson, featuring a screening of the film Lighthouse. Robert Pattinson’s brilliant career is a study in celebrity, strategy, and subtle genius. His meteoric rise to stardom launched by the juggernaut Twilight series, Pattinson opted to stretch his professional skills, leverage his status, and successfully embrace independent projects with a wide array of challenging roles from cinema’s finest auteurs including David Cronenberg (Maps to the Stars), Claire Denis (High Life), Werner Herzog (Queen of the Desert), James Gray (The Lost City of Z), and the Safdie brothers (Good Time). Don’t miss Pattinson’s standout supporting turn at the Festival in David Michôd’s THE KING.
THE LIGHTHOUSE-In his eagerly anticipated follow-up to The Witch, director Robert Eggers enlists the prodigious talents of Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe for a stunning Gothic thriller—winner of the FIPRESCI Prize at Cannes—set on a tumultuous isle off the coast of New England. Shot on stunning black-and-white 35mm film and loosely inspired by the writings of Herman Melville and poet Sarah Orne Jewett as well as the diaries of late-19th century lighthouse keepers, Eggers sets the stage for a wildly impressive acting showdown between two powerhouse artists, who deliver riveting full-bodied performances that rank among the best of their careers.
