(2016) M.L. Stedman's 2012 novel about love and loss in 1920s Australia is adapted for the big screen by writer-director Derek Cianfrance, who marshals lush cinematography and first-rate acting. A lighthouse keeper (Michael Fassbender) and his spirited wife (Alicia Vikander) are happily married but unable to start a family, enduring two miscarriages. When a dinghy washes ashore on their remote island carrying a dead man and an infant girl who's barely alive, they decide to raise the child as their own. But conscience weighs heavily, and a chance encounter with the lass' real mother (Rachel Weisz) complicates matters considerably. Mature themes, scenes of marital sensuality, and a few profane oaths. (A-III – adults) (PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned) Showtime (cable)
