Light Between the Oceans

"My life. Isabel, my love. Every day we spend together…" Studiocanal UK has debuted the first trailer for Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance's latest film, The Light Between Oceans, starring Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander. Set in Australia in the years following WWI, the film is about a couple that rescues a small baby that washes ashore, raising her as their own. It's desribed as a "beautiful yet heart-breaking story of love and sacrifice", based on the book by M.L Stedman. The cast includes Rachel Weisz, Benedict Hardie and Emily Barclay, produced by David Heyman. This looks truly wonderful, everything I was expecting it to be. The score in this is already so beautiful, making me feel emotional. Watch below.

Here's the first official 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. Stay tuned for more updates on this film. First impression?

Damn. I could see this easily slipping into cheesy melodrama but man, if the performances, music, and cinematography are as good as they look here, this looks like it could make waves. Im sold.

Man I don't think I could handle this. Having children has made me such a wuss when it comes to watching films that deal with losing children in any way. Even Inside Out made my wife and I cry several times. LOL

Solid casting. I'll be hoping it's shown in one of the theaters near me.
