The Light Between Oceans is all about breath-taking ocean views and the heart breaking performances by Alicia Vikander, Michael Fassbender, and Rachel Weisz. The story does have its weak points, but does a great job dropping hints towards the drama in store for our characters. I had hoped the story turned down a different path at the end, though it followed the safe/predictable route that will please audiences and make it a serious contender for numerous Oscars.
