Check out the gorgeous trailer for ‘The Light Between the Oceans”
The Light Between Oceans is an upcoming drama written and directed by Derek Cianfrance. It is based on the novel written by M. L. Stedman. The film stars Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander and Rachel Weisz.
The plot synopsis, summarized by Wikipedia, is shown below:
Tom Sherbourne (Michael Fassbender), a lighthouse keeper, and his wife Isabel (Alicia Vikander) are living off the coast in post World War I Western Australia. One day, the couple rescue a baby girl who has washed up an on adrift rowboat and decide to informally adopt her as their own, whom they name Lucy. But as Lucy grows older, Tom and Isabel discover the consequences of raising the child when a visit to the mainland and an encounter with a particular woman, (Rachel Weisz), threaten to break apart their blissfully happy family.
Real Life Trivia: Michael Fassbender, 39 and Oscar-winning Alicia Vikander, 27 first met on the set of The Light Between Oceans in 2014. They have been spotted together at several award ceremonies over the past few months, although rumors are already swirling that their relationship may be in jeopardy due to their busy schedules. Fassbender is amping up for the red carpet tour of Assassin’s Creed: The Movie, due out in December, while Vikander has just recently launched her own production company, Vikarious Productions.
The Light Between the Oceans is set for a release date of September 2nd, 2016. I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely putting the novel on my summer reading list.
