DVD Review: Light of My Life

December 17, 2019

By John Corrado

Directed by Casey Affleck from his own screenplay, Light of My Life is a quietly effective survival drama set in a post-apocalyptic future world where a mysterious illness wiped out the female half of the population, leaving a father (Affleck) struggling to keep his preteen daughter (Anna Pniowsky) hidden from other men. The film was released on DVD last month.

This is a small film that flew mostly under the radar during its brief release in theatres and on demand this summer, and I think it deserves more attention. It’s an understated and beautifully filmed drama that explores an interesting high concept premise, which has been brought to life through wonderful performances by Affleck and Pniowsky. For more on the film itself, you can read my full review of it right here.

The DVD includes no bonus features, but the package does come with a digital copy.

Light of My Life is an Elevation Pictures release. It’s 120 minutes and rated PG.

Street Date: November 5th, 2019
