Must Watch: New Trailer for Cianfrance's 'The Light Between Oceans'
"She needs us! We're not doing anything wrong…" Disney/DreamWorks have debuted another new trailer for Derek Cianfrance's The Light Between Oceans, the latest film from Cianfrance based on the book of the same name. The film stars Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander as a couple living on an island off the coast of Australia that raise a young child as their own after it washes up on shore one day. The cast includes Rachel Weisz, Emily Barclay, Anthony Hayes and Leon Ford. I totally adore the first trailer for this film, sometimes just watching it on repeat randomly during the day, and this new trailer is just as wonderful. I love the music and the emotions are so strong it's hard not to be pulled in by this. Cannot wait.
Here's the second trailer for Derek Cianfrance's The Light Between Oceans, direct from YouTube:
On a remote Australian island in the years following World War I, lighthouse keeper Tom Sherbourne (Michael Fassbender) and his wife, Isabel (Alicia Vikander), discover a boat washed ashore carrying a dead man and a two-month old baby. Rescuing the infant, they make the decision to raise her as their own but the consequences of their choice prove to be devastating. The Light Between Oceans is both written and directed by American filmmaker Derek Cianfrance, of the films Brother Tied, Blue Valentine and A Place Beyond the Pines previously. It's based on the extraordinary best-selling novel of the same name written by M.L Stedman. Disney/DreamWorks will release Cianfrance's The Light Between Oceans in theaters in the US starting on September 2nd later this year. Watch the first trailer again. Still looking forward to this?

I am sorry, but no. I suppose its Academy Award worthy and stuff, but no. It's all to improbable. So they lose their baby. And then by miracle, a boat with a baby arrives out of nowhere. What are the odds? And then, out of nowhere, the mother of the baby pops up. Again, what are the odds? Such improbable events I can accept as the premise of a sci-fi or fantasy movie, but not in a serious drama.

You might want to give it a chance. The novel was excellent and how all the events unfold is told with grace and probability. I understand your take on it, but having read the book and liking it very much this could be a very good movie. Just saying'. My apprehensions stem more from who has directed the movie. I think Cianofrance is talented and has a voice, but I wasn't much taken with either Blue Valentine or the Beyond the Pines movie. They just didn't work for me. So I'm interested to see what he did with this material, but my apprehensions remain. So you may very well be right in the long run. He has assembled a terrific cast though as both actresses are incredible. I have always been a little apathetic regarding Fassbender and I can't really explain why. He seems to be a pretty good actor, but for some reason I am indifferent to him and his work. Ummmmm.....
