Fassbender and Vikander broke up :((((((((((
I have been waiting long for this day. Love the director, love the actors.
I knew nothing of this movie before opening this thread. Now after seeing the trailer it’s one of my most anticipated of the year. What a beautiful, emotionally charged trailer. I hope we see all three main actors at next year’s Oscars!
I really wish we see the 3 of them as nominees next year (specially Rachel Weisz who should had been nominated for The Deep Blue Sea).
Hopefully never. That trailer was awful. Hopefully Razzies nom Vikander for this.
At first I was like such a rip off of Malick films, and then it blew me away. This is my must see.
Derek Cianfrance has demonstrated potential.
The Light Between Oceans
The first 30 mins or so are pleasant enough. The cinematography is gorgeous. Vikander is luminous and charming, and she and Fassbender have nice chemistry. But once, the plot kicks in, it gets REALLY interesting. I actually think they should have cut the first 30 mins (and I mean, their courtship) and started right with them spotting the boat in the water. Really fascinating story, and man, what an actress Rachel Weisz. Not that it surprised me, but the second she shows up, the film has more gravitas. And that’s not knocking Fassbender or Vikander’s work here. Weisz is simply awe-inspiring in every role. I think with some minor adjustments, this could have been one of the best movies of 2016.
