The couple at the centre of the story are Tom Sherbourne, a survivor of WW1’s Western Front, who takes up the position of the new lighthouse keeper; and Isabel, an inhabitant of the mainland harbour town closest to Janus Rock and its lighthouse.
Played with great depth on screen by real life couple Michael Fasbender and Alicia Vikander, the two meet as Tom disembarks in Australia. They fall in love and start a life together at the lighthouse, the only inhabitants of the island. They long for a child, but fate denies them, until a boat washes ashore with a dead man and a crying baby the only cargo. The impossible choices that follow offer no easy answers.
Beautifully and dramatically shot, this is a tale of moral dilemmas, family secrets, love, fate, betrayal and ultimately the boundless compassion of a human heart…….bring your tissues (and maybe a cold flannel!).
"Unashamedly and even ruthlessly sentimental, this film tugs away at your heartstrings like it’s ringing in the new year. A new Richter scale may have to be devised to measure the mass audience lip-trembling.."
"Every character does all the wrong things for all the right reasons, and you find yourself sympathising with each decision they make while agreeing with none of them."
