Keep the Lights On by Ira Sachs, 2012 (NR)

with Thure Lindhardt (The Borgias), Zachary Booth (The Beaver), Julianne Nicholson, Souleymane Sy Savane, Paprika Steen, Maria Dizzia (Orange is the New Black, Love and Other Impossible Pursuits The Other Woman), Sebastian La Cause, Justin Reinsilber, David Anzuelo

In Manhattan, filmmaker Erik bonds with closeted lawyer Paul after a fling. As their relationship becomes one fueled by highs, lows, and dysfunctional patterns, Erik struggles to negotiate his own boundaries while being true to himself.

This is no ordinary movie. It is a small production, with relevant actors, such as Paprika Steen, one of the giants of Danish cinema, amazing acting, a story that is not common, an elaborate cinematography, nearing the thin line of raw, naturalist intentionally. The story is quite long, over the course of ten years, it is about relationship, responsibility, what is easy to give up and at the same time, the importance of letting go, very mature. What I also found amazing is the masculine perspective on the topic, which I am not very knowledgeable about, this movie is about a relationship from a man's perspective, with the complexity of a man's mind.
