We might only be days away from 2016 edition of The Oscars, today it seems the focus is on 2017 Oscars with the release of The Light Between The Oceans. Tonight we get our first look at Derek Cianfrance‘s upcoming film first UK trailer that teases another loving couple facing heartache in the name of maternal love.
Oscar nominees Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander lead the cast who could be winners by the time we see this in our cinemas.But could they also be Oscar contenders for next years awards? Early buzz is saying yes!
The Light Between The Oceans is a beautiful yet heart-breaking story of love and sacrifice.
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.
This is looking like one hell of roller coaster ride of emotions, makes you wonder if your local favourite cineplex should be selling hankies rather than popcorn. Whilst I haven’t read the actual book the film is based on things do look solid, get a sense of the scope of the story too. The film follows the heartbreak seen in Blue Valentine and The Place Beyond The Pines and their complications that come with relationships. It looks like Fassbender and Vikander so called ‘relationship’ looks like is delivering a big slice of authenticity, as this was also the film where there love for each other blossomed. Another highlight is the film’s cinematography which comes from MacBeth’s DOP Adam Arkapaw, visually beautiful.
The Light Between The Oceans doesn’t have a UK release date yet. USA release is September, so possibly similar release date with a good chance of Cannes this year too. The film also stars Rachel Weisz with David Heyman. producing.
