Thomas (Mullan), James (Butler) and Donald (Swindells) are three lighthouse keepers who arrive on an uninhabited island, 20 miles from the Scottish coast, for a six-week shift. As they settle into their routines, they unexpectedly come across a chest full of gold, which seems to belong to a sinister group of men on a distant boat. However, as the three men enter a battle of survival, they must also fight their personal greed if they are to make it through as a unit…
IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
Gerard Butler dials down the action significantly in this low-key psychological thriller that looks a lot more nail-biting and intense than most of his other recent features.
