Awards season 2016-’17 has begun!
What’s for sure is Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander, both currently nominated for their work in Steve Jobs and The Danish Girl, not to mention Youth’s Rachel Weisz, all will be working the circuit later in the year, when Derek Cianfrance’s The Light Between Oceans is released on Sept. 2.
A drama based on an eponymous 2012 M.L. Stedman novel, the film will center on a lighthouse keeper who, together with his wife, finds a baby girl (and her dead mother) in a rowboat by the shore. Their decision to raise the child as their own in post-World War I Australia will later prove a life-changing and confronting. So, you know...tears.
The Fass, of course, will play the lighthouse keeper, while Vikander will portray his wife. Weisz is on board as the girl’s mom.
Looking forward to the trailer for this one.
