The Light Between Two Oceans… or how two white people stole a baby and felt super guilty about it.
In essence, Light Between Two Oceans is about a loving couple that marry and try to start out a family on an isolated lighthouse island. After two miscarriages, they begin to give up hope on the idea entirely, that is until a boat with a baby in it washes up on shore like it was carried down the Nile. His wife (Alicia Vikander), who’s obviously affected by her miscarriages, becomes quickly attached to the baby. Rather than separate the mother and child, and end what may be his wife’s only chance at being a “Mother,” he decides to keep the child and cover up the babysnatching all together.
