2016 Certificate: 12


When a rowboat carrying a dead man and a baby girl washes up on their Australian island, lighthouse keeper Tom (Michael Fassbender) - a survivor of the Western Front - and his wife Isabel (Alicia Vikander) choose not to report the death and declare the child their own. But the secret weighs heavily on Tom, especially when its previously unseen consequences are suddenly made heart-rendingly clear. Writer-director Derek Cianfrance skillfully covers the physical and emotional landscapes of M.L. Stedman's bestselling novel in this tempestuous tale of guilt, grief, love and redemption.
