It's "lights out " for The Lightkeepers, 25 April 2010
Author: dawndances from United States

It was with high hopes that I drove an hour to see this movie. Well, all right... the true motivation was that Richard Dreyfuss was making an in person Q + A session appearance at the theater after the movie, and I was really pretty darned excited about that.

The movie itself was sweet enough, but the story was so contrived (right down to the poorly costumed 1920's swimwear) that it was hardly even remotely believable. It was a "cute little ditty", but no where near the caliber of blockbuster movie Drefuss has been involved in in the past. I guess we all mellow out as we age, but this movie was on par with "lights out" as it was occasionally putting me to sleep. The Q+A session afterward was interesting though.
