Based on the best-selling novel of the same name, director Derek Cianfrance ('Blue Valentine', 'The Place Beyond the Pines') has adapted this moving meditation on love and loss starring Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander.
Emotionally lost after the war, lighthouse keeper Tom falls in love with Isabel who desperately wants to become a mother but is unable to. Just when her anguish is at its deepest, a boat washes up on the shore with a dead man and a distraught baby in it. Their decision to bring up the girl as their own daughter takes on profound ramifications when a story of a mother whose family went missing comes to light.
