The Light Between Oceans

One of my favorite filmmakers working today is Derek Cianfrance, behind the films Blue Valentine and The Place Beyond the Pines. Cianfrance's next feature is an adaptation of M.L. Stedman's novel called The Light Between Oceans, about a lighthouse keeper and his wife living off the coast of Western Australia raising a baby they find. Alicia Vikander stars with Michael Fassbender as the married couple on the island, and the cast also includes Rachel Weisz, Emily Barclay and a few others. This first look photo of Vikander standing on a bluff over the ocean is a gorgeous photo and the only shot we've seen from this so far. This is a film I have been tracking closely and I'm already impatient to see, don't even need any footage.

Here's the first look photo from Cianfrance's The Light Between Oceans, first found by The Film Stage:

The Light Between Oceans

The synopsis for the book this is based on describes: "Tom Sherbourne is a lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, a tiny island a half day's boat journey from the coast of Western Australia. When a baby washes up in a rowboat, he and his young wife Isabel decide to raise the child as their own. The baby seems like a gift from God… [Author] M. L. Stedman's vivid characters and gorgeous descriptions of the solitude of Janus Rock and of the unpredictable Australian frontier create a perfect backdrop for the tale of longing, loss, and the overwhelming love for a child that is The Light Between Oceans." Early buzz indicates that the film is "one of the most powerful and emotional dramas" waiting to be released. The Light Between Oceans is both written and directed by filmmaker Derek Cianfrance, of Blue Valentine and The Place Beyond the Pines previously. The film is set to open sometime in 2016 but no exact release date has been set yet. Stay tuned.

What about his next movie 'the wind between her breasts'? Dude needs to come up with less pretentious titles.

How about the Stephen King book "The Wind Through the Key Hole". Does that "fit" into your approval for a less pretentious title? Or is that too artsy and wordy for you?

Good question. Let me think it through. I still like my title the best I think. I think his movies are ok, just saying.

Im a huge fan of his films, blue valentine get's me everytime. but I have to say I think I like 'the wind between her breasts' as a title a little more.
