‘The Light Between Oceans’ Venice Review: Alicia Vikander Flirts With Tragedy, Settles Down With Sap

3 hours ago

With his first three features – “Blue Valentine,” “The Place Beyond the Pines,” and now “The Light Between Oceans” – there seems to be a definite pattern in the films of writer-director Derek Cianfrance. He offers up fascinating, complex characters who make difficult life choices, often in locales that are captivating or at least unusual. And then he bobbles the third act. Adapting the novel by M.L. Stedman, Cianfrance spends a good part of “The Light Between Oceans” creating empathy for men and women who are at odds with each other, even the ones who have behaved selfishly and recklessly. »

4 hours ago

Nick Viall will be the next “Bachelor,” ABC announced during the “After Paradise” special on Tuesday night.

The second time, he fought for Kaitlyn Bristowe’s heart, but lost out to Shawn Booth. It’s a bit of a surprising announcement, given that “The Bachelor” and its spinoff “The Bachelorette” always choose a contestant that had competed on the season prior to the current one.

Will ‘Don’t Breathe’ Hold Off Newcomers ‘Light Between Oceans’ and ‘Morgan’ at the Box Office?

6 hours ago

Don’t look to this Labor Day weekend to push the summer box office into the stratosphere. Even though titles new and old have an extra day to amass earnings during the upcoming four-day holiday, it’s going to be a pretty low-grossing weekend as predictions around DreamWorks Pictures and Reliance Entertainment’s romantic drama “The Light Between Oceans” and 20th Century Fox’s sci-fi mystery “Morgan” have both coming in under $10 million. Results shouldn’t put too much of a dent into the season’s overall performance seeing as Labor Day is historically a relatively low-grossing period, with last year’s highest performer, »
