Faith Reels: Preview for ‘The Light Between Oceans’

Faith Reels: Preview for ‘The Light Between Oceans’

by Bonnie Anderson and Dan Webster

Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander star in ‘The Light Between Oceans’ to be released widely on Friday (September 2). We had the pleasure of attending a preview screening of the film and want to give you a “heads up” before Friday so you can plan to see it this weekend.

This film, set in the dramatic scenery of coastal New Zealand, is based upon M.L. Stedman’s 2012 bestseller of the same name. In a remote location along the coast a couple, living in and staffing a lighthouse, discover a baby and a dead body in a boat bobbing in the ocean in front of the lighthouse. The story that ensues is one of moral choice, love, longing, remorse, constraint and freedom. Directed by Derek Cianfrance and produced by DreamWorks. See our complete review of this film on The Episcopal Café this Friday.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
