There was a time when Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander were real life lovers/the envy of the whole damn world. And we can relive that moment with their new movie, The Light Between Oceans, where they play a so in love couple who is living a dream, until a fateful introduction with a widow played by Rachel Weisz.
Based on the M.L. Stedman novel, The Light Between Oceans centers on Tom and Isabel Sherbourne, who’s happy life off the coast of Western Australia is forever changed when a baby washes ashore in a lifeboat. They raise her as their own, with joy blooming each day. But their happiness is shattered when they meet Hannah Roennfeldt, a woman whose husband and baby were lost at sea. From there, the Sherbournes must make an impossible decision to keep their foundling daughter and doom her biological mother to unending grief, or give her up and rip their own lives apart. Blue Valentine’s Derek Cianfrance directs.
The Light Between Oceans opens on September 2nd, 2016.
