I adore period movies. I’m not sure if it’s the glimpse into a simpler time or the costuming, but I’m a sucker. Give me a beautiful story line and gorgeous cinematography and I’m sold.
Having the chance to check out the first look and trailer for “The Light Between Oceans” from Dreamworks Pictures has me excited to hit the theater this autumn. Yes, I wrote autumn. The movie is scheduled to premiere on September 2, 2016, but until then there’s new images and a stunning official trailer.
“The Light Between Oceans” is a heart-breaking drama about fate, love, moral dilemmas and the lengths to which one couple will go to see their dreams realized. The film is based on the best-selling novel by M.L. Stedman and gives the tale of a very much in love couple that go through tragic loss when the baby she’s carrying dies. A unique happenstance occurs and brings a baby girl to the couple, who call the child their own. The couple meet a young lady whose daughter and husband die at sea, and they immediately realize the child belongs to the woman. What comes next is a story of morality and love, heartbreak and courage.
The film stars Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander, Rachel Weisz, Bryan Brown & Jack Thompson, and was written for the screen and also directed by Derek Cianfrance.
