If you’re a fan of romance-dramas set within a period setting, then you will want to set a reminder for DreamWorks Pictures’ “The Light Between Oceans,” which is releasing on the home box-office in 2017.
The classical-romance tale stars two-time Academy Award nominee Michael Fassbender (Best Actor, Steve Jobs), Oscar winner Alicia Vikander (Best Supporting Actress, The Danish Girl), and Oscar and Golden Globe winner Rachel Weisz (Best Supporting Actress, The Constant Gardener). The film will arrives on Digital HD, Blu-ray, DVD and On-Demand early next year.
The beautiful film is based on the 2012 best-selling novel by M.L. Stedman, which swept readers away with its transporting story of fate, love, moral dilemmas and the lengths one couple will go to see their hard-fought dreams realized. The film did very well in theaters, though in a limited release. The drama opened to $4.75M, ending its theatrical run with an estimated $15.82M total.
The in-home release of “The Light Between Oceans” will carry audiences even deeper into this timeless tale of love and impossible choices through never-before-seen bonus features, including a documentary which reveals director Derek Cianfrance’s unique approach that allowed the all-star cast to embody their characters and examine the power of love; a historical look at New Zealand’s Cape Campbell Lighthouse that serves as Janus Rock, a key element in Stedman’s novel; and insightful and in-depth audio commentary led by Cianfrance.
