The summer bummers of moviedom is officially over, and the season of actual good movies is upon us, and what a way to kick the season off with Derek Cianfrance‘s The Light Between Oceans!
WWI is over and shell-shocked survivor Michael Fassbender is looking for steady work. He looks no further when he becomes a lighthouse keeper off the coast of Australia. He enjoys the quiet solitary job and life, but things aint so quiet or solitary no more when a lovely lady of the shore – Alicia Vikander – anchors away on his heart! She literally wants to marry a lighthouse keeper AND DOES (and the two actors fell in love f’reals on the set)!!! They try for kids but miscarriage and become very disparaged. Then a dead man and an alive baby wash up on their lighthouse shores and change everything!! EVERYTHING!!! They assume the parentage of the orphaned child and life moves on. BUT DOES IT??? What about the baby’s mother??? To say anything more about the plot would be saying more about the plot, but all I’ll say is that Rachel Weisz is in the movie too, and the trailer spoils the movie, so don’t watch the trailer
I don’t know much about who Derek Cianfrance is as a person, cept he’s a guy who makes movies – and I fcuking love him cause of the movies he makes! His debut – Blue Valentine – is still giving my heart painful palpitations (in a good bad way), and his follow-up – The Place Beyond The Pines – is another painful place I think of fondly. And with his third feature – The Light Between Oceans – all I can say is SURF’S UP, YO! Actually, that’s not all I can say. I would say that this is somehow his LEAST painful movie (but don’t worry pain-freaks, there’s still plenty of pain to ‘enjoy’ here), but perhaps it is his most beautiful film yet! So beautiful that I don’t juss want to marry the lighthouse keeper, I want to marry that fcuking lighthouse too!
