The Light Between Oceans

The Light Between Oceans, the movie, is based on the NY Times Best selling novel of the same name, in which a lighthouse keeper and his wife living off the coast of Western Australia raise a baby they rescue from an adrift rowboat.

The most curious thing about the movie adaptation is that Disney is dumping it in theaters during the worst movie-going weekend of the year, Labor Day Weekend.

The book is one of the best books of the past 5 years, and the cast of the movie is sensational, including Oscar winners and nominees Alicia Vikander, Michael Fassbender and Rachel Weisz.

It also has a great director, Derek Cianfrance.

What is so bad with the movie that it has been held up for months, is being dumped during the worst week of the year and took until a month before its release to receive a trailer and poster?
