    Academy Award® winner Richard Dreyfuss (Jaws, The Goodbye Girl) stars with Emmy and Tony winner Blythe Danner (Meet the Fockers) and Oscar® nominee Bruce Dern (Coming Home) in this warmhearted tale of lost love and second chances. The year is 1912. Vowing to swear off women for good, curmudgeonly Seth Atkins (Dreyfuss) takes refuge tending a remote Cape Cod lighthouse. Then, a mysterious stranger (Tom Wisdom, Pirate Radio) literally washes up in Seth’s life, with a past full of secrets and a similar aversion to females. But the arrival of two beautiful, spirited women (Danner and Mamie Gummer) will test the men’s resolve – and send all four of them sailing into uncharted romantic waters!

    The scenery was beautiful, the costuming was nice, all in all a very nice, light movie.
    Janet Eller
    I found the film slow moving, I had problems understanding some of the dialog from the way it was enunciated, and the ending was all too predictable.
    Avid Mystery Reader
    Richard Dreyfuss and Blythe Danner are such excellent actors, and they are very believable in the parts they play.

    This picture is ideal for all ages for it shows good character in a time where our promises meant something. A big plus is that it has a little bit of our fading lighthouse history using acurate lighthouse terms. This story made me feel good because, like the characters, we all have something to hide. No matter how far we run from it our truths will end up staring at us. Truth is a beacon in the darkest night to warn us and guide us from danger. The message to me here is that those of us who are true to our word find that words are powerful and what we say and do is important. How we treat our spouse is the most valuable truth we can share with them.

    I own this on Blue-ray and fully enjoy the story. It is a beautiful you-are-there setting in a our almost forgotten history of lighthouse keeping. The lighthouse is real and you can see the keeper light the wick just like they did a hundred years ago. A wonderful movie.

    Format: DVD
    "The Woman Haters," a novel by Joseph Crosby Lincoln published in 1911, tells the story of an old Cape Cod lighthouse keeper and the young New York gentleman who becomes his assistant. Their male-only world is upset when two women come to Cape Cod for the summer and stay in a nearby house. Coincidentally the older woman is the estranged wife of the lighthouse keeper and the other is a young lady just about the age of the assistant lighthouse keeper. You can guess the rest of the plot which plays out in an enjoyable but rather predictable manner.

    A mere 100 years after the novel was published, we have the same story - very slightly altered - in the Lightkeepers. Despite the predictable plot, I found it quite moving - Dreyfuss and Danner are especially good in their scenes. It's a bit slow in places, but I recommend it as a delightful period piece.

    The Lightkeepers is a love story from the bliss of Cape Cod. The story is inspired by a book by Joseph C Lincoln (famous Cape author), "The Women Haters." It's about a lighthouse keeper, Seth (Richard Dreyfuss) and his new secretive trainee, assistant, alias John Brown, literal beach flotsam. They are a pair of characters, both women haters, both with secrets connected to females. This is a delightful character driven period (1912 Cape Cod) story. Filmed on the Cape location, it is as scenic as any travelogue, and the music is wonderful too. Hallmark could not have done better. this is a romance set in a time and place that will make your heart drool. A film so pure it bleeds authenticity. PG because the Cape lightkeepers smoke pipes.

    Their women hater's world is interrupted by 2 ladies appearing for the summer in a neighboring cottage. Ruth Lowell (Mamie Gummer-Meryl Streep's daughter), a rich young girl, is cared for by her housekeeper Mrs. Bascom (Blythe Danner). Of course these women, of similar age to the men, pose a threat to their single gender coastal locale. The women provide some surprise twists to the story and their own characters are a study as worthy as the mens', but much more beautiful. New secrets are enjoined. Some brilliant role playing by these 4 actors.

    Joining the cast for short spots are Julie Harris, Bruce Dern, and even Ben Dreyfuss as a grocery boy. Yes Ben is Richard Dreyfuss' son.

    Alas, such a crime it is...NO SDH SUBTITLES or CC. This is a HUGE fault, as this DVD is best suited for the older generations, and some of us can use the subtitles. What were they thinking? No movie of the 21st century should be without subtitles, especially when it markets to the over 30 or 40 or 50.
    Regardless, my wife and I will watch this one over again and again. Makes a senior want to snuggle.

    In this day of films of questionable subject matter, language, sexual inuendo or content, I was delighted by this wonderful film. I would have no problems allowing a son or daughter to view this film.

    The characters were well planned and not just 2 dimensional. They seemed very realistic and interesting.

    Cheers to Richard Dreyfuss, the cast, crew, and production team!

    This was a beautiful movie. I loved Richard Dreyfuss' eccentric character, and Blythe Danner was a wonderful match. This was a story about real love that endures the trials and tests life throws at it. With humor, natural beauty, fun and lovely characters, and all around goodness, this was a joy for my husband and I to watch. Very moving and heartwarming. We will definitely be purchasing this movie so we can watch it again and again.

    We enjoyed the human story that comes alive exploding false fences that people build to hide behind. The elements that bring down the fences true to life and thus humorous. Amazon.Learn more

    Enchanting! This was a very engaging and adult love story about how love can prevail. Excellent acting, writing and cinematography. If you like the sea, you will be swept away by the beauty of the cape cod coast.

    I just viewed this film last night and found it OK. I kept seeing this DVD advertised in CBD (Christian Book Distributors) sales catalog. To be honest, I often find things I want from that catalog and can often find the same item at Amazon for less. Anyway, although I am not a big DVD collector, I do occasionally buy films and either keep them or give them to my friends to watch as well. Honestly, I had a hard time following some of the dialog from the main character (the lighthouse keeper who is played by Richard Dreyfuss. I have always liked Dreyfuss since that old film Mr. Holland's Opus. Dreyfuss plays a crusty old gent that walked out on his wife and now is in the "woman's hater club." As the story unfolds, as luck would have it, his wife comes to the lighthouse on Cape Cod, and well, the rest is what makes up the film.
    I found the film slow moving, I had problems understanding some of the dialog from the way it was enunciated, and the ending was all too predictable. Although rated PG, I really can't say why it was not rated G except for one "damn" and maybe the discussion of a suicide. This certainly was not one of Dreyfuss' better movies but all-in-all, it was OK for a couple of hours respite.
