Michael Fassbender has so many projects coming up—"Slow West," "Macbeth," "Assassin's Creed," an untitled Terrence Malick film—we nearly forgot about "The Light Between Oceans." And shame on us because it's directed by Derek Cianfrance, who has knocked it out of the park with his last two films, "Blue Valentine" and "The Place Between The Pines." And the project is adding another exciting name.

And intelligent, thoughtful filmmakers will often, not always, but often be attracted to engaging material. Thus the combination of Michael Fassbender and Derek Cianfrance (“Blue Valentine,” “The Place Beyond The Pines”) is already one that is cause for much excitement in these here Playlist parts.

If there has been one through line on Derek Cianfrance's first three features, it has been family. His first (and still unreleased) film "Brother Tied" dealt with two brothers, his sophomore breakout "Blue Valentine" chronicled a crumbling marriage while his latest, "The Place Beyond The Pines," detailed the generational sins of fathers as they are passed down the bloodline. And now he's lined up a new project, one that once again will see him tackle marriage, parenting, death and more.
