November 16, 2018 The Light Between Oceans (2016, US/UK/New Zealand, directed by Derek Cianfrance, 132 min.)
Quiet and reserved World War I trench battle veteran Tom Sherbourne (Michael Fassbender) takes a job as a lighthouse keeper on a remote island, Janus Rock, off the Australian coast. He meets Isabel (Alicia Vikander) in the mainland town and their immediate mutual attraction leads to marriage. Their happiness is marred by two miscarriages. Then a rowboat washes ashore, containing the body of a man and a crying baby girl whom Isabel persuades Tom to raise as their own. A complex story unfolds, about love and guilt, forgiveness and redemption, the meaning of parenthood and the ramifications of difficult decisions. With Rachel Weisz as Hannah Roennfeldt and Florence Clery as Lucy-Grace. (#437)
