The trailer for 'The Light Between Oceans' is easily the most emotionally devastating thing you'll see today
I have not read the book it's based on, but the movie version of The Light Between Oceans, starring Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander and Rachel Weisz, looks pretty solid—the kind of movie that wins awards. Based on the best-selling novel from M.L. Stedman, the Derek Cianfrance-directed film follows the story of a lighthouse-tending couple (Fassbender and Vikander) that end up raising a baby they rescue from a boat. But several years later, the child's mother (Weisz) appears, explaining that she lost her baby at sea around the same time. It hits theaters on September 2.
