Can any of my patrons who have both read M.L. Stedman’s The Light Between Oceans and seen Derek Cianfrance’s adaptation tell me whether the movie matches up with the book in its soapy, over-the-top, yet remarkably under-drawn melodrama? I either know people who have read the book or watched the film. I don’t know people who have pulled off both feats. Regardless, I did not much care for the movie, as you will no doubt detect if you peruse my review over at Paste Magazine. Which I think you should do. Seems like a good idea.
