I was fortunate enough to carry all three of my children to term, though I did have a scare with Madilyn that landed me on bed rest for three months.
I do; however, know many women who have tried desperately to have their own children, and who have suffered miscarriage after miscarriage after miscarriage. I cannot understand their heartache, or the lengths to which they would to to have a child.
The upcoming DreamWorks Pictures’, “The Light Between Oceans” deals with just such loss and gift of life. The emotion that rages through this trailer is intense – I felt my heart seize up and tears well in my eyes in this short trailer. It also left me feeling the need to talk in a British accent for the rest of the day, though admittedly that is a daily occurrence.
I love a good, heartfelt movie, and this one, based on the novel by M.L. Stedman opens everywhere in theaters on September 2. Watch the trailer and read more below.
DreamWorks Pictures’ “The Light Between Oceans” is a heart-breaking drama about fate, love, moral dilemmas and the lengths to which one couple will go to see their dreams realized.

In the years following World War I, Tom Sherbourne (Michael Fassbender), a young veteran still numb from his years in combat, takes a job as lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, a remote island off the coast of Western Australia. As the island’s sole inhabitant, he finds comfort in the monotony of the chores and the solitude of his surroundings. When he meets the daughter of the school’s headmaster, Isabel Graysmark (Alicia Vikander), in the local town of Partageuse on the mainland, Tom is immediately captivated by her beauty, wit and passion, and they are soon married and living on the island. As their love flourishes, he begins to feel again, their happiness marred only by their inability to start a family, so when a rowboat with a dead man and infant girl mysteriously washes ashore, Isabel believes their prayers may have finally been answered. As a man of principle, Tom is torn between reporting the lost child and pleasing the woman he loves, and against his better judgment he agrees to let Isabel raise the child as their own, making a choice with devastating consequences.
