Check out the first trailer for Light Between Oceans!
Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander and Rachel Weisz bear a sea of sadness in the first trailer for “The Light Between Oceans.”
The film, directed by Derek Cianfrance (“The Place Beyond the Pines”) and based on the debut novel by M.L. Stedman, is set at an isolated lighthouse on the Western Australian coast after World War I.
Fassbender’s and Vikander’s characters find happiness when they informally adopt a baby girl who has washed up in a lifeboat. But several years later, the girl’s mother (Weisz) appears, explaining that she lost her baby daughter and husband at sea around the same time.
