I went to see The Light Between Two Oceans. I love lighthouses. I love the ocean. I love historical movies. There's something about a simpler time that I find to be serene and calming. Not that I want to churn my own butter or pluck the feathers off my dinner before cooking it. I enjoy my modern conveinences - the ones I can operate, at any rate.
This movie did not disappoint. The scenery was breathtaking. I enjoyed the costumes. And I love a romance. This had it all, but so much tragedy. Heartbreaking tragedy. I didn't always understand why the characters did what they did, which brought about all the tragedy. The ending was somewhat happy, but also sad or bittersweet.
