Starring Michael Fassbender (Steve Jobs) and Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl), The Light Between Oceans is based on the novel by M.L. Stedman and tells the story of a lighthouse keeper and his wife living off the coast of Western Australia who raise a baby they rescue from an adrift rowboat. Check out the first trailer:

I am completely sold on this film already, the cast is fantastic; Fassbender is one of the finest actors working today, check out Steve Jobs, 12 Years A Slave, Shame and Macbeth for some of his best work and Alicia Vikander took Hollywood by storm in 2015 with her performances in Ex Machina and The Danish Girl. The two are also a couple in real life which should serve well for their on screen chemistry.

The story looks very good and it's directed by Derek Cianfrance who directed both Blue Valentine and The Place Beyond The Pines, two absolutely fantastic films lead by Ryan Gosling which I highly recommend. The Light Between Oceans opens on September 2nd 2016.
