# 《大洋之光》

Let’s begin, though, with a break in the voice, just holding back the sobs . because this is a week when crying at the cinema is positively encouraged. Why? A new film, The Light Between Oceans is - it’s an adaptation of M. L. Stedman’s novel about a couple played by Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander. Some baby’s at babies that are lost and the ones had one that’s found, but not necessarily in a happy the happiest sequence. , all set against the storm and drown over wrong of a remote Australian island surrounded by unpredictable seas. A recent Oxford University’s University study suggested that watching emotionally wrenching drama on screen activates the production of endorphins-scientific endorphins - scientific endorsement that a good cry makes you feel better. For many, The Light Between Oceans will be a terrific night out. Some audience members have cried solely solidly for the film’s final hour. The adaptation and the direction is by American director Derek Cianfrance, whose two previous features, Blue Valentine and The Place Beyond the Pines certainly moved muted me to tears. And Derek admitted that he decided to adapt The Light Between Oceans partly because it made him cry.

I mean, I love the book. I remember I was on the sea city train in New York City , crying. You know, my face was milking melting from tears , reading the end of the this book . and you know, I was embarrassed. , you know, initially, and then I thought to myselfthat , if anyone else was reading what I was reading, they will would be having the same emotional response responds and I just used that as my North Star.
