An average movie

I wasn't really sure what to expect from this movie but since I have a weak spot for Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, even though it was a very well made drama, especially visually speaking, with some really solid performances, I still had a hard time to really care about this story. I mean, Fassbender and Vikander had a very nice chemistry and they ... read more

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- May 2017 (33 movies items)

" DVD- 2hrs. 13min. First Viewing Its all too abstract to really connect, but its hard to deny the craft that's gone into The Light Between Oceans. The film is exceptionally made, with outstanding cinematography and strong sets/costumes and another grand Desplat-score, but too withdrawn to connect. The director chooses a more restrained filmmaking style that keeps the viewer at a distance; that is, except for when Vikander is on screen. She brings a rawness to the film that is often heartbreaking"

I mean, Fassbender and Vikander had a very nice chemistry and they made a great couple together (it's not surprising that they have been together ever since they shot this movie) but, obviously, when you have already a perfect couple after only 20 minutes, you can be sure that it won't stay that way for very long. And, indeed, everything seemed to be ruined by a couple of miscarriages but, then, they miraculously find a baby on the shore so you might think that t” read more

"27 May. This painful drama tells the story of a couple who finds a baby and makes her their own until circumstances leads them to give her up. The setting of the lighthouse island is unforgettable, the sound of the waves, the wind, the leaves leave their mark. It is beautifully shot.ย  "
