Eggers’ last film was The Lighthouse (A24), a hypnotic and hallucinatory tale of two lighthouse keepers on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s.
Before that, he directed The Witch (A24), which was set in 1630 New England. In the film, an English farmer relocates his wife and five children to a remote plot of land on the edge of an ominous forest – within which lurks an unknown evil.
Strange and unsettling things begin to happen almost immediately – animals turn malevolent, crops fail, and one child disappears as another becomes seemingly possessed by an evil spirit.
With suspicion and paranoia mounting, family members accuse teenage daughter Thomasin of witchcraft, charges she adamantly denies. As circumstances grow more treacherous, each family member’s faith, loyalty and love become tested in shocking and unforgettable ways.
