Written and directed by Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine, The Place Beyond The Pines), the film, based on a best selling novel by M.L. Stedman, stars Michael Fassbender, Rachel Weisz and recent best Supporting Actress Oscar winner, Alicia Vikander. 

Set on a remote Australian island in the years following World War I, a lighthouse keeper (Fassbender) and his wife (Vikander) are faced with a moral dilemma when a boat washes ashore with a dead man and a two-month-old infant.  When they decide to raise the child as their own, the consequences of their choice are devastating.

DreamWorks acquired the movie rights to the novel in 2012, with David Heyman and Jeffrey Clifford producing. Participant Media co-produced the film, which was shot in Australia and New Zealand in 2014.

The Light Beyond Oceans will be release in the US on September 2, 2016.  You can see the trailer here.
