Fast-forward a few years and a chance encounter with a woman named Hannah (Rachel Weisz) on the mainland deals the couple a devastating blow.

Based on the novel of the same name, The Light Between Oceans is an astonishing drama featuring a terrific A-List cast, including Michael Fassbender (Alien: Covenant), Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl), Rachel Weisz (The Lobster) and Bryan Brown (Cocktail).
