The Light Between the Oceans Trailer

Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander have to face a difficult choice in the trailer for the movie adaption of The Light Between the Oceans. View trailer below.

After four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia and takes a job as the lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, nearly half a day’s journey from the coast. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes once a season, Tom brings a young, bold, and loving wife, Isabel. Years later, after two miscarriages and one stillbirth, the grieving Isabel hears a baby’s cries on the wind. A boat has washed up onshore carrying a dead man and a living baby. Tom, who keeps meticulous records and whose moral principles have withstood a horrific war, wants to report the man and infant immediately. But Isabel insists the baby is a “gift from God,” and against Tom’s judgment, they claim her as their own and name her Lucy.

When she is two, Tom and Isabel return to the mainland and are reminded that there are other people in the world. Their choice has devastated one of them.

Working at a bookstore, I remember selling a lot of copies of this book to customer, which say its pretty good. I like both Fassbender and Vikander, so naturally I’m curious to see this movie when it comes out.

The Light Between the Oceans is set to arrive in theaters on September 2nd, 2016
