    A lifeless period romance of the cutesy-cantankerous persuasion. show more

    You can't really hate The Lightkeepers. You can only wish that writer-director Daniel Adams had invested the movie with equal measures of originality and quaintness … and maybe told Dreyfuss to tone down the whole sea captain thing. show more

    Such predictable pap is generally better suited for romance novels or Lifetime movies. Here, it's elevated somewhat by a decent cast. show more

    A five star movie. So nice to see a movie with a happy ending for all, great acting, great scenery. Nice not to have to hear constant cursing and watch lots of explicit crime and sex scenes. Let\'s leave something to the imagination.

    Finally a movie I looked forward to seeing. People today could learn a lot about how to act and dress from 1912. A classic time in our Country. Unfortunately gone forever. Today we have tattoos and body piercing !!
