“A beautifully sustained study in adult themes of emotional crisis. ”~Slant Magazine
Aroview: An elegant sweeping melodrama set in post-WWI Western Australia about a lighthouse keeper and his wife who raise a baby they rescue from an adrift rowboat, only to years later face a moral dilemma when they encounter the real mother of the baby.
Largely film in New Zealand (Dunedin & Marlborough), and based on the debut novel by M.L. Stedman.

4 stars (Very Good) Beautifully filmed - captures the feeling of the area. intercut shots of Australia & Otago divert; the light is very different there. Alicia Vikander is wonderful but the movie is let down by a creaky script.Interesting extras. Recomended overall.~Sandy
