A teaser poster for Keepers, the upcoming thriller movie directed by Danish Filmmaker Kristoffer Nyholm based on a script by Celyn Jones and Joe Bone and starring Peter Mullan, Gerard Butler and Connor Swindells:
What’s left when the light goes out?
“On an uninhabited island 20 miles from the rugged Scottish coast, three lighthouse keepers arrive for their six-week shift. As Thomas (Peter Mullan), James (Gerard Butler) and Donald (Connor Swindells) settle into their usual, solitary routines, something unexpected and potentially life-changing occurs- they stumble upon something that isn’t theirs to keep. Where did it come from? Who does it belong to? A boat appears in the distance that might hold the answer to these questions… What follows is a tense battle for survival as personal greed replaces loyalty – and fed by isolation and paranoia, three honest men are led down a path to destruction.”
The film is actually based on real-life events of 1900 which happened on a remote island group just off the Outer Hebrides which became known as the Flannan Isles mystery. Learn more about it in this video:
