Movie Reviews

New York Observer - 10/10 by Rex Reed A mesmerizing, engrossing and beautifully made cinematic experience, rare as a pink unicorn, that enchants for more than two hours and makes you wish for at least one hour more.
Boston Globe - 8/10 by Ty Burr A sweeping romantic period drama, heavy with themes of love and duty and fate, lifted up by cinematic craft and great performances.
Entertainment Weekly - 8/10 by Leah Greenblatt The whole thing is feverishly earnest and more than a little manipulative, but it’s also possibly the prettiest two hours of emotional ­masochism so far this year.
The Telegraph - 8/10 by Robbie Collin Both Fassbender and Vikander explore their characters’ various thorny moral quandaries and shifting states of mind in breath-catching depth, drilling down through the plot’s melodramatic crust to the swirling ethical magma underneath.
ReelViews - 8/10 by James Berardinelli It’s a well-made, serious drama arriving in an era when those qualities rarely describe multiplex fare.
Indiewire - 8/10 by David Ehrlich This is a widescreen ode to the beauty of absolution, told with such constant sincerity that you can’t help but want to forgive its flaws.
Slant Magazine - 8/10 by Sam C. Mac Derek Cianfrance's film is a beautifully sustained study in adult themes of emotional crisis.
San Francisco Chronicle - 8/10 by Peter Hartlaub As much as Fassbender, Vikander and Rachel Weisz, the feelings of isolation, despair and self-reproach deserve top billing in The Light Between Oceans.
The New York Times - 8/10 by Stephen Holden As a drama about adult responsibility, selfishness and moral obligations, however, it never wavers in its commitment to examine what it means to raise a child.
The Guardian - 8/10 by Peter Bradshaw The Light Between Oceans isn’t subtle – that swoony title should tip you off – and it’s a fair way from the realist grit of the less obviously commercial pictures Cianfrance has made previously. There’s more corn in the recipe here, a bit more ham and cheese. But he carries it off with forthright defiance and with strong, heartfelt, ingenuous performances from Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender.
The A.V. Club - 7/10 by A.A. Dowd If the drama is purely abstract, Vikander didn’t get the memo. Even as her storyline takes on the baggage of metaphor, she plays the emotions real and raw and close — her Isabel visibly brightening as she reads her first love letter from Tom or crumbling as a terrible loss dawns upon her. Nothing symbolic there.
Consequence of Sound - 7/10 by Dominick Suzanne-Mayer The Light Between Oceans is an effective melodrama, but the lingering sensation the film leaves after its end is that it might have been much more.
