First Look at Alicia Vikander in Derek Cianfrance's 'The Light Between Oceans' Revealed

An early glimpse has just been released that will undoubtedly whet your appetite for Derek Cianfrance’s upcoming emotional roller coaster, “The Light Between Oceans.” The stunning picture, which first appeared on The Film Stage, shows breakout star Alicia Vikander standing on a precipice in front of the Indian Ocean.

This follow-up to Cianfrance’s triptych “The Place Beyond the Pines” features an equally formidable cast led by Vikander, Michael Fassbender and Rachel Weisz. Based on the novel of the same name by M.L. Stedman, “The Light Between Oceans” tells the story of a lighthouse keeper and his wife who find a baby washed ashore in a rowboat and raise it as their own. The picture offers an early look at the devastatingly beautiful Australian frontier that serves as the backdrop for the drama.

Unfortunately, audiences may have to wait a while to see “The Light Between Oceans” as the film is still in post-production. The movie currently has no U.S. release date, and its UK release was recently postponed to January 2017.
