The latest Boulder International Film Fest announcement has a green tinge to it:
The Festival kicks off Thursday, Feb. 11 at 6:30 p.m. with an Opening Night Red-Carpet Gala and screening of “The Lightkeepers,” starring Richard Dreyfuss, Blythe Danner, Bruce Dern, Tom Wisdom and Mamie Gummer. “The Lightkeepers” tells the story of Seth Atkins, the lightkeeper for Eastham Light, a lighthouse on a deserted beach in Cape Cod in the year 1912. A mysterious man takes the position of assistant lightkeeper, and the two men swear an oath to never get involved with women. However, they soon find themselves contending with two female summer visitors. Movie Pictures Magazine says, “Blythe Danner’s Oscar-worthy performance makes the battling of wits into an art form.” Following the screening of the film, Danner, writer and director Daniel Adams, and producer Straw Weisman will participate in a live question and answer session with the audience.
Blythe Danner won a 2002 Environmental Media Award — the Directors Ongoing Commitment Award.
