The Lighthouse: Two Opinions Oceans Apart

Establishing shot: fog, thick.  A foghorn cautions from somewhere. The fog recedes and shows open ocean. It lightens a little more, and a steamer ship on the horizon motors towards us. On the bow, we have two men, staring into the fog of oblivion.  In the distance, an island with a beacon, and nothing else. There, the keepers will be alone for four weeks until relief.
