The Light Between Oceans now on Blu-Ray, Digital HD, and DVD12:23 AM
I am not always in the mood for a moving tear-jerker, but now that The Light Between Oceans is out, it's as good a time as any. This Dreamworks film, now out on Blu-Ray, Digital HD, and DVD is based on the best-selling novel by the same name. It tells the story of a couple in love who lose their child only to find a miracle in another. But when the child's mother returns after many years, will they make the right choice?
As a mom of 6, I about die just watching the trailer, but I know that this is a really well done film and it has so much to offer. I've been waiting for the right moment since it came out in the theater last year, and I'm so happy to watch it in my own home (where I can laugh and cry and no one, but my daughter can see me.)
Like any Dreamworks film, it has some amazing extras. Really cool bonus features on the Blu-Ray and Digital HD include:
Bringing The Light to Life – For weeks, the cast and crew of “The Light Between Oceans” lived in trailers on Cape Campbell, an isolated region of New Zealand, to film the movie adaptation of the best-selling novel. This documentary chronicles the unique approach and shooting style of director Derek Cianfrance and the production journey that inspired Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander and Rachel Weisz to fully embody their characters and explore the power and depths of love.
Audio Commentary – View the film accompanied by an in-depth and thoughtful conversation between director Derek Cianfrance and his film studies professor Phil Solomon.
Lighthouse Keeper – The filmmakers, cast and Cape Campbell Lighthouse inspector/maintainer Rob Sword share the history of the lighthouse and explain the typical duties a lighthouse keeper like Tom Sherbourne would have during an assignment on Janus Island.
This movie is perfect for a girl's night in. I plan on making it a special movie event to watch with my daughter. Now that she's 18, we enjoy watching so many things together. This has been on our list for awhile! (And we will eat lots of chocolate and use lots of tissues!)
The cast for this movie is so amazing. Who doesn't care for the charming Michael Fassbender? And his former "The Danish Girl" co-lead Alicia Vikander and Rachel Weisz are amazing, too!
Speaking of a stellar cast, check out this quick clip on how casting is done for a film like this.
