The Light Between Oceans and The Preppie Connection Trailers
Director Derek Cianfrance emerged onto the scene with his highly regarded 2010 relationship drama, Blue Valentine. Two short years later he pushed hard to ultimately release his ambitious three-part and multi-generational film, The Place Beyond the Pines. Since then, we haven't seen or heard from Cianfrance ... until now. Lined up for a September release, a trailer has dropped for the filmmaker's newly adapted effort, The Light Between Oceans. Michael Fassbender stars as an Australian lighthouse keeper who, along with his wife (Alicia Vikander), discovers an infant floating in wreckage. And after years of raising the child as their own, the couple eventually learns of the child's true identity. The cast is top notch so there's certainly reasons worth getting excited for The Light Between Oceans.
Another intriguing new trailer to drop recently comes from a brief festival circuit entry, The Preppie Connection. Director Joseph Castelo's based on a true story film stars Thomas Mann (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) as a prep school student who became an international drug trafficker in the 1980s in order to win the affection of a female classmate. Headed for a limited release this March, a solid trailer has me on the lookout for The Preppie Connection.
