From director Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine, The Place Beyond the Pines) and the producers of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas comes The Light Between Oceans – a beautiful yet heartbreaking story of love and sacrifice, based on the best-selling Australian novel by M.L. Stedman.
In the years following World War I, lighthouse keeper Tom Sherbourne (Michael Fassbender) and his wife Isabel (Alicia Vikander) begin their life together on a remote island off the coast of Western Australia. As the only inhabitants, the couple lives a quiet life, deeply in love and cocooned from the rest of the world. But they long for a child to complete their happy family.
One day, a mysterious rowboat washes ashore carrying a dead man and a crying baby girl. The couple's lives suddenly hit unthinkable moral crossroads – do they raise the baby as their own or find out the real story behind this child’s mysterious arrival?
