From acclaimed director Derek Cianfrance, (Blue Valentine, A Place Beyond the Pines), and based on the extraordinary best-selling novel from M.L Stedman, THE LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS is a beautiful, heart-breaking and ultimately redemptive story of love and sacrifice.
In the years following World War I, lighthouse keeper Tom Sherbourne (Academy Award nominee Michael Fassbender) and his wife Isabel (Academy Award winner Alicia Vikander) begin their life together on a remote island off the coast of Western Australia. As the only inhabitants of Janus Rock, the couple live a quiet life, blissfully in love and sheltered from the rest of the world.
Then one day, a mysterious rowboat washes ashore carrying a dead man and a crying baby girl. Reeling from a recent loss, Tom and Isabel decide to raise the child as their own, setting off a chain of decisions – some impetuous, others wrenching – that unravel with shattering consequences.
Also starring Academy Award winner RachelWeisz, THE LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS is a sweeping and
dramatic romance, beautifully told through stunning contemplative cinematography.
