After delivering the extremely bleak and poignant dramas The Place Beyond the Pines and Blue Valentine, director Derek Cianfrance is back to tug at your heartstrings again, this time with an adaptation of M.L. Stedman‘s novel The Light Between Oceans.
The drama stars Michael Fassbender as a lighthouse keeper, living with his wife (Alicia Vikander) on a remote island in Australia. One day a tiny boat appears near their shore with a baby girl inside of it, leaving them to raise her as their own daughter. But things get complicated when happenstance brings the child’s true mother (Rachel Weisz) into their life. As you can guess, a moral quandary presents itself, and thus begins the drama.

Right now, I imagine everyone at the Disney lot, based in Burbank, California, is currently swimming in money, eating nothing but money, and dressed to the nines in money, because they damn well should be. With the ongoing success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the studio ended 2015 on a high note — a note that’ll keep playing well into 2016.
A potentially fantastic year for the studio is far from over. Disney is releasing a handful of promising films this year. See a few new pics from their future projects, including Zootopia, The Jungle Book, Alice Through the Looking Glass, and Queen of Katwe, after the jump.

One of our most exciting young directors is about to team up with one of our most exciting young actors. Michael Fassbender has just signed to star in The Light Between Oceans, directed by Derek Cianfrance. The film, an adaptation of a novel by M.L. Stedman, is about a lighthouse keeper who decides to secretly raise a young infant found in a shipwreck.
While that’s extremely intriguing on it’s own, here’s an even juicier morsel. Reports are Fassbender will shoot this film next, followed by Prometheus 2, which he recently said is happening. But where does that leave Assassin’s Creed, the video game adaptation that already has an August 7, 2015 release date? Read More »

Derek Cianfrance knows a thing or two about tricky family relationships, judging by his previous works. Brother Tied explored a troubled sibling rivalry, Blue Valentine examined the breakdown of a once-promising marriage, and The Place Beyond the Pines saw fathers unwittingly passing their sins down to their sons.
His next directorial effort continues in a similar vein, though this time the family’s biggest problem seems to come from outsiders rather than from each other. Cianfrance has signed on for DreamWorks’ The Light Between Oceans, an adaptation of the bestselling novel by M.L. Stedman. Get the plot details after the jump.
