A trailer for The Light Between Oceans, Derek Cianfrance’s latest emotionally devastating film, has been released. It stars Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander, both Oscars hopefuls this year, and seems poised to make a run at next-year’s ceremony.
Here is the trailer:
The plot is laid out for us, but there promises to be any number of emotional pendulum swings throughout. Vikander is officially the hottest new actress around, and Fassbender continues to flirt with that Oscar statue. This could very well get it for him.
It’s easy to cry “Oscar Bait!” at the very sight of The Light Between Oceans, but so what? What if it’s compelling drama, Oscar bait or no?
The Light Between Oceans, based on ML Stedman’s bestseller, will start its release schedule this September.
