Tom Sherbourne (Michael Fassbender) has just made it back from WWI alive, but he witnessed many atrocities. Wishing for a sea change he goes all out, taking a solo job keeping a lighthouse on a tiny island off the Western Australian coast. After some long distance flirting, he’s later joined by Isabel Graysmark (Alicia Vikander) and they set about starting a family – hey, it isn’t like there’s much else to do when the piano’s broken! After suffering two traumatic losses it appears that they’re not meant to be parents. But then a baby washes up in a rowboat. They take her in as their own, but the decision will have consequences… Adapted from M.L. Stedman’s 2012 novel and directed by Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine), this tear-jerking drama is bolstered by classic Aussie acting muscle like Jack Thompson, Bryan Brown and Garry McDonald.
