B+/A+
Though it’s set almost a century ago, The Light Between Oceans feels like a refugee from a more recent past—the misty, Miramax-y ’90s.

80/100
As a drama about adult responsibility, selfishness and moral obligations, however, it never wavers in its commitment to examine what it means to raise a child.

B/A+
The Light Between Oceans seems almost single-minded in its pursuit of theme; by the time the nationality of the dead man in the boat is revealed.

The Light Between Oceans: Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander show breath-catching depth.
64d ago
Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander give heartfelt performances in a tale of love and sacrifice that isn’t afraid to hit cymbal-crashing levels of sentimentality.
